Monroe firefighter Brelin Chisley was awarded 2nd place for “Firefighter of the Year.”

Chisley was selected for his hard work and dedication to MFD and his community out of the state’s 10 VFW districts and 80 posts.

"I'm not going to say it's been an easy course it's been kind of tough, but any opportunity that they give me they try and take it," he said.

This is the second year in a row that the MFD had a second-place winner.
