Lt. Jason Kim of Fire Station 40 in Fairfax Center was honored last Thursday, March 17, with the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) Fire Safety Commendation Award. Bill Collier, of the SAR’s Col. William Grayson Chapter, presented him with the award. He did so during the station’s A-shift, with Kim’s proud family and shift mates in attendance.
According to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, “Kim is a newly promoted officer who goes out of his way to learn more about his new position. As a relief officer in the 7th Battalion, his assignments range from rural Clifton to urban Fair Oaks.
“Wherever he is, Kim explores, asks questions and sets expectations for his crew. He is also a member of the Hazardous Materials Response Team and is training to ride in command of the Hazardous Materials Unit at Station 40. As a paramedic, Lt. Kim is a true, all-hazards officer and takes all his roles very seriously, to include being a mentor to newer members. Congratulations to him and thank you,
SAR, for your continued support of the FCFRD firefighters and paramedics.”
