Interview: John Hillmann, Mr. September 2017
Please give a heartfelt welcome to our top firefighter seller for the 2017 calendar year and this month’s featured firefighter, John Hillmann. John has been at Simla Fire Department for fifteen years with fourteen of those fifteen years as an EMT and thirteen of the last fifteen years as the Fire Chief. He joined the volunteer department after his family was in a car accident and the volunteer firefighters at the accident scene were amazing to his family.
John could not pick his favorite memory of his time with the Colorado Firefighter Calendar, as he stated “all of them, there is never a dull moment”.
His hero is his mom for raising all five of her kids to be caring and conscientious individuals. John also said his dad for showing John a strong work ethic and how to fix anything and everything!
He tried out for the calendar to prove to himself that he could make the calendar and then it blossomed into a love for helping the kids in their time of need. John credits eating right and his workout regimen (he put a gym right outside his office) for keeping him in tip top calendar shape.
The Colorado Firefighter Calendar is grateful to you for your dedication to your job, the calendar, and your commitment to raising funds for the Burn Center and Burn Camps Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
