Lieutenant John McGee received the first New Mexico firefighter of the year award from AT&T and the American Lung Association. Lt. McGee has been with AFR for 14 years and is a paramedic instructor involved with training videos and podcasts for cadets. “We make sacrifices everyday and I’m not special by any means, hundreds could have earned this award so, I’m just really proud we’re being acknowledged,” said Lt.
