VIEW, Texas - National speaker Bob Page took time on Saturday to congratulate Brandon Phillips on being the Volunteer Firefighter of the Year.
View Fire Department awards one person each year based on anonymous votes.
This year, eight-year volunteer firefighter Phillips took home the honor – and a few gifts too.
South Taylor EMS even came out to support Phillips, who said he was surprised and grateful his co-workers even thought of him when they voted this year.
"It was truly an honor. I've been out here about eight years and I wouldn't have expected in a million years," Phillips said. "It excites me that people I volunteer with thought highly of me enough to vote for...that is a voted award."
