According to the nominator, Casey Kelley has been a Fire Chief in Shoshone for about 10 years after volunteering on the Hagerman QRU and fire department 15 years before that. Casey was raised in Shoshone and decided to return after living in Hagerman so he could give back to the community that helped raise him.

According to the nominator, Casey also took training through Safe Kids to be a Child Safety Passenger Technician so he can help families that are in need of car seats and show them how to properly install those seats for infants and toddlers.

Casey also helps in the SID's Prevention Foundation to promote safe sleeping for children and distributes cribs, beds and whatever else is needed to those families in need.

Huge shout out to Casey for being such an amazing person and help in the community of Shoshone. Your extra efforts are appreciated more than you probably know.
