Even With Long Hours, This Central NY Firefighter Is Always A Dad First
It seems first responders never stop working and serving their community. That's certainly the case when it comes to Scott.
Meet Scott Holbert Jr.
Here's a guy that's not only committed to his job and community, but more importantly to his family. Scott is a Corrections Officer at Oneida County Jail, where he has to work long mandated hours. Though he misses his family, especially his one year-old son, he's proud to put in the hard work to support them.
Not only is he a Corrections Officer, but he also serves as a volunteer fireman for the Bridgewater Fire Department. Regardless of how tired he might be, serving his community and family always come first.
He enjoys and loves doing what he does despite being over-worked!
Thank you Scott for all that you do. You are an inspiration to your community, not only as a leader, but as a father as well.
Nominate a First Responder
Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in Central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officer, military, rescuer, front-line worker, or any other person first on the scene.
Include their name, a picture, and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday." We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them an oil change from Jiffy Lube on Commercial Drive in New Hartford and a Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
