According to Article III Section 1.5 of the Husser Volunteer Fire Department By-laws, “Honorary Members are those that have been appointed this status by the Chief Officers because of the credit they have brought to themselves or to the department.”
Mitch joined the department on July 18, 2006 and during his time as a Husser firefighter, he served as Grant Writer, Vice President and President. In 2009 he was named Firefighter of the Year for his tremendous performance as a firefighter in 2008. During his time with us Mitch has given aid to several hundred patients and fought many fires.
In the later part of 2014 Mitch made the hard decision to turn in his gear, and focus on his health so he may one day be able to suit up and fight fires again. Until that day comes please join us in congratulating and thanking for his service, Mr. Mitch Fontenot.
