The results are in and we have this year’s Hometown Hero!

We had a lot of great entries this year and after calculating all the votes, we are happy to announce that Joshua Benoit is our winner! Benoit is a full-time Fairhaven Firefighter and paramedic, who also works on Rochester’s and Marion’s ambulances and fire departments.

He was nominated by his mother and his story will touch any heart who reads it.

Last year was a tough year for Benoit. Working in his hometown, Fairhaven, the time comes when you have to work on somebody you know. Even your family members. One of Benoit’s calls last year was for his uncle, who unfortunately they lost to cardiac arrest.

That same year, Benoit was called to an emergency he hoped he’d never see. Click to listen to him tell his story.

Benoit has won a celebratory dinner at the Pasta House in Fairhaven, a $300 gift card to that restaurant, and a $300 gift card to Wareham Crossing.
