We are proud to announce that the August Firefighter of the Month is Firefighter Aaron Conerly. Aaron was hired with the fire department on April 1, 2015. Since that date, he has not wasted any time in completing his minimum requirements as well as several advanced classes. Aaron has recorded over 500 training hours at the MS Fire Academy including his Basic Firefighter Class, Driver/Operator, Rope Rescue, Hazardous Materials Technician, Confined Space Rescue, and Smoke Di...ver, a very physically and mentally challenging course. He has also gained his nationally registered EMT certification. He displays the same work diligence everyday while on duty with A Shift at Station 1. This should come as no surprise as Aaron is also a former US Marine who received several medals and accommodations while serving our country for the war on terrorism. Aaron is the son of Pearl Police Chief Ronnie Conerly.
The Pearl Chamber of Commerce presented Aaron with a framed certificate, a $100 Bass Pro Gift Card and a Cracker Barrel Gift Basket along with a complete meal for two. Bullock Investigations and Security donated a $25 Shell Gift Card; The Pearl Municipal Credit Union donated a $25 Visa Gift Card; Jose’s Mexican Restaurant donated a $20 gift certificate; McAlister’s Deli donated two FREE meals; Scott’s Miracle Gro donated a Fit Bit; Signmark donated a duffel bag and Great American Cookie Company donated a cookie cake!
