State association taps Warner Robins firefighter for rookie award

Warner Robins firefighter Jonathan Clark has been selected by the Georgia State Firefighters Association as Rookie Firefighter of the Year for 2015.

He is expected to be honored at a reception during the association’s annual conference on Jekyll Island on Sept. 19, according to a Warner Robins Fire Department news release.

In his three years with the department, Clark has trained to become a relief fire truck driver, earned a Firefighter II Certification, won a spot on the Warner Robins Fire Department Dive Team and re-established the department’s competition team.

Clark also is expected to receive a commendation from the governor at next year’s 44th Annual Firefighter Recognition Day in Atlanta.
