Two Savannah Fire and Emergency Services firefighters were honored after being nominated by their peers for their outstanding job performance.

Master Firefighter Eric McKenna was presented the Department's Firefighter of the Year Award and Advanced Firefighter Christian Hutcherson was named Rookie Firefighter of the Year.

"The guys behind me are the ones who really had me pushing for it," said Hutcherson. "They've been on my back the whole year, just striving for excellence."

"I think it's a bunch of things: fire ground experience, outside the employment, helping the community," said McKenna. "It's not just one aspect, it's a bunch together."

The awards were presented by the Firefighters Emerald Society of Southeast Georgia.

Chief Charles Middleton also made Mark Dana, president of the 200 Club, an honorary chief.
