Roanoke, VA – Always dropping what he’s doing to answer a call for help is what gained Devin Jennings a hero spotlight.
Jennings has always wanted to be a firefighter since he was a small boy.
The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree because both of his parents were firefighters.
Aspiring to be great helpers of the community like them, Jennings’s hard work and dedication pushed him to become a junior firefighter at age 16.
As soon as he graduated high school, he was hired immediately out of high school.
“It’s nice to meet someone who loves their job and has wanted to help people their entire life,” said The American Red Cross.
The Lexington Fire Department recognized Jennings, who always puts his best foot forward, for saving lives with CPR on many occasions.
Jennings is also a volunteer firefighter and EMT for the South River Volunteer Fire Department where he was nominated for Firefighter of the Year.
“No matter what he is doing, Devin will stop to answer a call in his free time,” said The American Red Cross which is proud to award Devin Jennings as the 2022 Firefighter Hero.
