Cadet Firefighter Devin Ardekani Awarded Rookie Of The Year For Skills USA
Congratulations to PFVFD Cadet Firefighter Devin Ardekani who was recently awarded with Rookie of the Year at the Calvert County Skills USA ceremony.
Ardekani held the highest score on nearly every final and took the lead in the class for the practical portion. Ardekani told Assistant Chief Brian Ficke about this tremendous learning experience, “I couldn’t have done it without all of you.”
In February 2018, Ardekani competed in the regional Skills USA competition at Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department.
Over a four-hour period cadet’s participated in a two-minute drill, threw a 24-foot ladder, hoisted tools, completed a CPAT and interview along with taking a written exam.
On this particular Skills USA day, Ardekani won in every single category for the practical portion. Those achievements, combined with the written exam, placed him in second.
Congratulations Firefighter Ardekani, we are proud of your accomplishments!
