Wednesday, October 15, 2014 10:30 am
Skylar Daniel joined the Rescue Squad six years ago. He is a very talented young man and we are proud to have him serving as a rescue technician and firefighter here in Cannon County.
Skylar is one of our rising stars and he is focused on training. He was awarded a Bachelor's Degree majoring in Agriculture, with a minor in Management, from Middle Tennessee State University. He holds a State of Tennessee Firefighter I certification and he is certified as a Vehicle Rescue Technician by the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squad (TARS).
Skylar has received training in Advance Vehicle Extrication and Emergency Vehicle Operations. He has also completed training in Incident Command and Management from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Currently, Skylar is in mid-process of training with our senior instructors to become a certified trainer for vehicle extrication. Early next year, he will attend formal training with the TARS Rescue College and become a State Certified Level One Instructor.
When asked why you joined the Rescue Squad, Skylar had this to say. "I joined the Squad so that I could better myself and serve the people of Cannon County. After my first rescue, I realized more why I joined. Responding to calls gets my blood flowing and it is rewarding to help people. Being part of the best team around, and the support we have for each other, makes it all worth the effort of volunteering. We (the responders) have worked hard to build up the Rescue Squad, and I am glad to see people in the community support the Squad and the Fire Departments."
Not only is Skylar a responder with the Rescue Squad, he is a volunteer firefighter with the Short Mountain Fire Department. Outside of his involvement with emergency services in Cannon County, he likes to be outside and enjoys farming. He also likes to hunt and enjoys being with his wife Shelby, who is also on the Rescue Squad and Short Mountain Fire Department.
We would like to thank Skylar for all of the work that he is doing in Cannon County every day to help our citizens. Skylar is very active in our operations and with our fundraising activities. He has made Cannon County a better place to live and work.
