HOMETOWN HERO — Kevin McCormick
How long have you been a member of HTFD-23 and why did you join?
The best part about being a part of HTFD-23 is having the opportunity to serve the community of Harrison Twp.
What do you do when you’re not fighting fires?
When I’m not fighting fires you can find me running, in the gym, splitting firewood, chainsaw carving, or pouring concrete.
Who would you say is the most influential person in your life and why?
As there have been many influential people in my life, the most influential person to me has been my Father. My Father has taught me a variety of skill sets in the building trades. My Father has molded me into a confident person which in turn set myself up for success in any situation I may come across. Last but not least my Father has taught me how to be tough, and toughness is determined both mentally and physically, and without it I wouldn’t be the man I am today.
What is your favorite movie and why?
I personally thoroughly enjoy war movies because they all contain a historical aspect which plays a big role in where we are today as a Country.
There is a movie about HTFD-23 – what actor would play you?
Arnold Swartz… with the humor and comedy of Jim Carrey.
If you had 3 magic beans – what would you wish for?
The first magic bean i would wish for a decision making expert on what I should ask for beans 2 and 3. For bean 2 I would ask for a puppy because that’s what came to mind and I didnt like the advice the expert gave me. And Bean 3 I would plant in my garden to make more beans to sell and make millions.
