For helping an entire community recover from a devastating flood, a Winston-Salem firefighter is North Carolina's Firefighter of the Year. "He's definitely a man of honor." That's how Winston-Salem Assistant Fire Chief Harry Brown describes Fire Engineer John Powell. But Powell describes himself in more humble terms. "It was just about supporting the guys in need at the time," Powell said. John Powell is the North Carolina State Firefighter Association Firefighter of the Year. Powell organized multiple successful drives to help the people of Princeville.
