SARATOGA SPRINGS – Saratoga Springs Firefighter Association president Joseph Brimhall was recently named the Union Man of the Year by the New York State Professional Fire Fighters Association.
“Any contribution I have been able to offer is because of the support of those closest to you,” Brimhall said in a press release. “My wife, daughter, and son have supported my involvement in the union 100 percent – and I [in] no words can adequately express their dedication to the union,” said Brimhall. “At the fire house, you live, eat and sleep with your colleagues around-the-clock – their concerns become yours too – and their well-being and security of those who rely upon help shape and drive your decisions. The members of Local 343 – have come together in ways some may have never imagined. We are united.”
