The Johns Creek Fire Department has named Trey Tipton as the “Firefighter of the Quarter” for the second quarter of 2013.
“Trey has worked hard from day one,” said Johns Creek Fire Chief Jeff Hogan. “He is well-respected by his peers and he does a great job every day.”
A native of Winder, Georgia, Tipton became a firefighter in 2003 after receiving training at the Luis F. Garland Fire Academy in San Angelo, Texas. Originally an Air Force firefighter, he was a firefighter in Japan, Qatar and Iraq. Tipton joined the Johns Creek Fire Department when it launched in October 2008.
Tipton, a Cumming resident, is currently a Firefighter II serving the Johns Creek community from Station 61.
“I am very honored to receive this award,” said Tipton. “We have a lot of exceptional firefighters that work in Johns Creek so to be chosen as the firefighter of the quarter is a great compliment.”
