Hero of the month for December - Milton Fireman Josh Payne!
1. Why did you become a fireman?
I became a fireman because I like helping people. I like having lots of fun and love putting myself in dangerous situations. Also, I am a people person and with this job I get to talk to lots of people which makes me very happy.
2. How many years have you been in this profession and where else have you worked?
I have been a fireman for 6 years. I started when I graduated from high school volunteering with the Alpharetta Fire Dept. From there I was full-time with the City of Hapeville where I worked for 4 ½ years before coming to Milton.
3. What has been your proudest moment since becoming a Milton Firefighter?
I do not have one proud moment. Since I was born and raised in Milton I am proud every day because my parents still live in the City of Milton along with lots of friends and family. Knowing that I protect them in this community every day that I come on duty is a proud moment.
4. What is your favorite food?
Steak & potatoes along with Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.
5. What is your favorite movie?
Not one but several. I am a movie buff.
6. Who is your favorite Singer?
This is a toughie because I am obsessed with music. I have over 1500 cds. I go to tons of concerts but I would guess if I had to choose Van Halen is my number one followed by Hank Junior and then all old school country. I like heavy metal music and all rock and roll. So music is in general one of my favorite things.
7. What is your favorite automobile?
Lifted truck that have lots of horse power.
8. What are your hobbies?
Hunting, fishing and anything outdoors.
