Plano Fire Rescue honored its best at an awards banquet Saturday night.
The highest honor, Firefighter of the Year, went to Don Becker.
In the nomination form a colleague wrote, "Don clearly loves the fire service and will spend hours talking strategy and tactics with anyone who will listen."
The latest news from around North Texas.
Becker has been a firefighter for more than three decades. As he stepped up to receive reward, colleagues called out "Goon! Goon!", a nickname given to him 34 years ago because of his size.
Fire Chief Sam Greif, Assistant. Chiefs Chris Biggerstaff and Danny Burks handed out awards to about a dozen other members of PFR.
