DC fire fighter Jason Woods was among those honored in this year’s Cafritz Awards, which honors District government workers who exemplify public service. Woods, a IAFF Local 36 DC fire fighter since 2000, also serves as president of the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation, which has raised over $1 million for much-needed equipment for The Burn Center at Med Star Washington Hospital Center and Children’s National Medical center and organized a community-wide support network to help burn survivors through the process of recovery. “While many people today see their job as a paycheck, it’s my passion,” says Woods. “I eat, sleep and breathe my career as a fire fighter of this great city.” Click here for Woods’ video.
