Last year was a successful — and busy — one for Ronnie Huff.

The 22-year veteran firefighter was named assistant chief at Central Callaway Fire Protection District in 2012, but he didn’t let that distinction keep him from the front lines; he was also the fifth most busy responder in number of calls that year.

His peers recognized him for his hard work Saturday at their annual firefighter dinner, when they named him Firefighter of the Year. The dinner is sponsored by Central Callaway’s Board of Directors “in recognition of the dedication and commitment that these men and women have shown throughout the year.”

“It really was (an honor),” said Huff of the distinction. “All of the firefighters vote on it and I really felt like this year there were a couple others who should have received the award, but I was really honored to get it.”

Chief Greg Luebbert said Huff is “definitely very active in the fire service. He’s knowledgeable and active both ... that’s nice to have in that position.”
