Maitland Fire-Rescue Lt. Dustin Moore was recognized at the City Council meeting Monday night as the 2020 Firefighter of the Year.
Moore started with the fire department in 2005. He became a Paramedic in 2007, a Paramedic Preceptor in 2010, Engineer in 2013 and Lieutenant in early 2020.
Last year, Moore started his Lieutenant duties by leading his five-member crew through the unprecedented pandemic. He also serves as program manager/procurement officer of medical supplies and equipment, which put him in the challenging position to acquire difficult-to-find personal protective equipment such as masks, gowns and gloves.
Lt. Moore led a committee for the design and build of two new rescue vehicles. Along with these accomplishments, Moore is a CPR instructor and a department trainer for firefighting emergency rope bailout and active shooter rescue. He coordinates the maintenance of EKG units, stretchers and LUCAS mechanical chest compression machines. He also serves with the Fire Department Honor Guard.
