LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—A Lafayette firefighter is being honored as a Hometown Hero. Cole Hauser was selected for his service to the community. At 16-years-old Cole was a Cadet for the Pine Village Volunteer Fire Department.
He worked his way up... getting his certification as an Emergency Medical Responder. He then went to college in Kentucky to get his degree in Fire Science.
Now at 23, Cole is a Firefighter for the City of Lafayette. He said he's devoted much of his teenage and young adult life serving his communities and it's a great feeling.
"I've always been one of those that I want to do something," said Hauser. "I want to do something whether it's emergency services or community service or whatever so I was fortunate enough that I found a way I could do it as a career."
Hometown Hero is made possible with the help of Westminster Village. If you'd like to nominate someone click here.
