Every week the Arizona Fire & Medical Authority Facebook page has a posting called Monday Motivation. Each one has a photograph, usually black and white with the AFMA logo in color, and one word prominently displayed over the picture. Next to the photo is a short 1-2 sentence message, always ending with, ““Have a great week everyone. Stay Safe.” The messages are the product of Mark Garratt, AFMA engineer/paramedic at Station 106 in Wittmann. Some of the messages are specific to fire service or a particular event, but all messages apply to everyone. Because of his many creative uses of social media to help tell the story of firefighters he was named Firefighter of the Year by the Sun City Lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
