Community service runs deep through this firefighter's family tree. And he is still keeping that tradition strong today. Dougie has been a first responder since he was in diapers. As a long time member of the Hubbardsville Fire Department, his years of experience and dedication to his community are showcased daily in his character. Urben actually comes from a long line of firemen and women. His grandfather served as a fireman for over 30-years, inspiring everyone he worked with. His grandmother was also a member, encouraging his father to join the team when he was old enough. Dougie hopes to keep the tradition going strong, as he is happy to welcome his baby boy to the Hubbardsville Fire Department family. Fire fighting is in his blood, and nothing makes Douglas happier than protecting his family and community in his uniform.
