For 12 years Jason Campbell has had two families, one at home and one at the fire department. Both families celebrated when Campbell was awarded the title of Firefighter of the Year on May 7 in the Cedar Falls City Council chambers. “We have a first family, which is your immediate family at home, and we have second family, which is here,” Campbell said. “If you ever need anything you can give one of these guys a call.” The award belongs to his fellow firefighters more than it does to him, Campbell said. “It’s more of a reflection on the fire department as a whole,” he said. “We work together as a team and, so it’s more of a team effort than an individual effort.”
