BRYAN COUNTY, GA - Firefighter/EMT Kevin Tomko has been named the “Employee of the Quarter” for the 2nd Quarter of 2021.

FF/EMT Tomko is with A Shift South Battalion Station 1. He was nominated by several BCFES members and following are direct quotes from those who nominated him.

"He’s been very proactive with instructing our training. He’s also been very informative through his experience of being at Savannah & other departments. Never seen him in a bad mood he’s always in high spirits."

"Kevin is an exemplary employee that is always willing to put forth the extra effort to get tasks done. Kevin goes above and beyond to assist in teaching and helping better his coworkers. Not only does Kevin work hard within the department, he goes one step further by assisting anywhere he can outside the department; for example he recently took his own time and money to bring food and water to firefighters undergoing the search and rescue efforts in the Miami building collapse."

"Kevin always has a smile on and he is always willing to help out wherever he can."

"Kevin steps up on and off shift. Always asking his commanding officers what next and taking on tasks without even being told. This award is well deserved and we are lucky to have him as a member of this department."

"FF Tomko is a great asset not just to his shift but the department overall. He works well on all shifts and contributes to a positive attitude and motivates those around him."

FF/EMT Tomko is a definite asset to BCFES and we congratulate him on a JOB WELL DONE!
