Fire Safety Commendation Medal

2010 Award Recipient

Dan Hahn

 

Dan is an exceptional firefighter, EMT and mentor for the Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department. For Dan the job of firefighter/EMT is not just about receiving a paycheck, he truly has a passion for the job.

 

Dan is assigned as an apparatus technician at station 34 which means his primary job is to drive and maintain the fire engine. Dan goes well above and beyond his duties on a daily basis. Over the last year or so he has been working with three firefighters on his shift to get them qualified as back up engine drivers. Training involves hundreds of hours per firefighter, and Dan handles the task expertly and with a lot of patience. Dan always emphasizes firefighter safety and never hesitates to point out anything that he feels is an unsafe practice.

Dan Hahn is also a very knowledgeable EMT. He requests to be put on the medic unit (ambulance) so that he can keep his EMT skills up to his high standards. Dan occasionally works overtime. When he does, he asks to be placed on one of the paramedic units so that he can continue to improve himself as an EMT.

 

When responding to medical emergencies, and after he completes his duties as the engine driver, Dan is always involved in patient care. He is very hands on and can be relied on to do anything that is asked of him when it comes to handling the sick and injured. As a paramedic, Dan is a tremendous asset on life threatening calls. Dan keeps his cool, knows his job, and can assist our ALS providers with any task or skill.

 

Dan understands that our primary mission is to serve the citizens and guests of Fairfax County. During the snow storms last winter Dan shoved sidewalks and driveways for anyone who called 911 or simply made a request.

 

When called upon to do educational or informational demonstrations for citizens, Dan ALWAYS asks to take the lead and speak to the public. When speaking to kids, there is no one more animated than Dan Hahn. He makes fire education a fun and learning experience for any crowd.

 

Dan is a great co-worker at the fire station. He can be called upon to handle any project he is asked to complete with little or no supervision. Dan keeps the crew laughing all day long. When the alarm sounds, however, he is all business.

 

One of the greatest things about Dan is the fact that when he is not at the fire station, his world centers around his daughters. He speaks to them multiple times a day, and on his days off he makes plans to spend as much time as he can with them. Technician Dan Hahn is not only a great Firefighter/EMT, he’s also a great Dad and well deserving of the Fairfax Resolves’ Firefighter of the Year Award.
