iVolunteerFIRE – Justin Hawes

Meet Erie County Volunteer Firefighter: JUSTIN HAWES
Justin is 19 years old and is a college student and lifeguard. He joined the Village of Akron Volunteer Fire Department in 2011, following in the footsteps of his father and Past Chief William Keith Hawes; two uncles: Joe Hawes – a past chief of the Newstead Volunteer Fire Company, and Chad Hawes – past chief of the Clarence Volunteer Fire Company.
Justin’s grandfather William George Hawes is a past chief and exempt member at Newstead while his great-grandfather Jack Powel was also a member of the Newstead Volunteer Fire Company.

Justin just graduated from Erie County’s Firefighter 1 Boot Camp in July-2012 and answers the burning question: iVolunteerFIRE because “It’s a family tradition.”

Who will be the next to follow in Justin’s footsteps? Will it be you?
