Matt Ford of Mount Vernon was recently named the Tyler Fire Department’s Firefighter of the Year. “If you could hand pick someone to be by your side, on the hose line, searching a building or in the trenches, Matt is one of the top picks in our department,” Fire Chief Tim Johnson said in announcing the award.
“This award is a testament to all the instrumental people in the Mount Vernon community who had a hand in raising me and showing me what a man should be,” Mr. Ford commented. See the May 1 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for the rest of this story.
