Meet Steve Glauer

Even though Steve hasn't been in Central New York all his life, he has been a first responder for most of it. He's served as a volunteer fire fighter for the past 37 years, first joining when he was 16 years old.

As a traveling nurse, Steve hasn't been able to stay in one town or city for too long. But the one place he always calls home is the fire hall. Glauer currently serves as a proud member of the Holland Patent Fire Department.

He takes great pride in his care delivery and is always willing to help in emergencies.
