Employees of the Year

NCFD is proud to announce May’s Employee-of-the-Month is awarded to Firefighter Griffin Hoffman.

From Chief Bulanow…

Based on the following recommendation from Battalion Chief Jospeph Caddell, it is my pleasure

to recognize you as “Employee-of-the-Month” for May 2022 with my appreciation for your

outstanding demonstration of our organizational values as described below.

On May 6, 2022 around 1430 hours, I, Battalion Chief Caddell, received a phone call from Captain Googe that there was an issue with Ladder 212, and they were going to run by the shop to get it checked out. After leaving the call that I was on I went to the shop to see what was going on with Ladder 212. When I arrived at the shop, the cab of the truck was up and they were trying to figure out the problem. The crew of L212 was assisting Mike from the shop handing him tools etc. At 1655 hours I was toned out for a vehicle fire, when I got back to the shop around 1715 hours, Firefighter Hoffman was under the truck with Mike assisting him taking air hoses off, bleeding the air tanks and doing everything he could to get the truck back in service. He was under the truck assisting Mike for over an hour. After this time, it was determined that the truck could not be fixed that day and we would have to wait on parts. The pride and ownership that Firefighter Hoffman took in his apparatus and to get under the truck to help Mike was above and beyond any expectations. Because of this I would like to recommend Firefighter Hoffman for Employee of the Month.
