NAME: Darian Collier, 25.
“New to Alabama and originally from Lexington, Kentucky. I was an EMT for 2 years and, through family and friends was introduced to firefighting. I fell in love with the job and knew that I wanted to become a firefighter. I joined up with Theodore Dawes shortly after moving here and just recently graduated from the Alabama Fire College Firefighter I/II program in Fort Payne, Alabama. “
FUN FACT: I marched in the Rose Bowl Parade and Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in the same year.
