The North Madison Volunteer Fire Company would like to announce and congratulate Past Chief John Brady as our 2020 Firefighter of the year also know as “the spirt of the company award” recipient. Past Chief John Brady joined the company back in April 1985. With about 35 years of service he is a well respected member of Nomad often lending a hand around the firehouse, as well as helping take the lead of firehouse projects or even being our resident handy man at the station. He has been historically a strong responder for many years. During his ongoing tenure at North Madison, he has served the role of Firefighter, 2nd Lieutenant, 1st Lieutenant, Captain, and Chief of Department from 1996 to 2002 on the operations side of the the company. He has also served as President and Treasurer of the company, where now he serves as a senior Firefighter Driver/Operator, and is still well involved with many committees at Nomad and currently serves as our firefighter pension liaison to the town of Madison. Aside from the fire department John sits on the Madison Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and also serves as a board member for the Madison Ambulance Association. John is always there to lend his support, wether its assisting with our annual fund drive, food drive, or Operation Santa Claus fundraiser, to responding to emergency calls anytime day or night. For that on behalf of the officers and members of the North Madison Volunteer Fire Company we congratulate John on being named 2020 spirit of the company award winner. We are proud to have Past Chief John Brady as a member of the department, and thank him for the many years of service and time that he has given to the department as well as the community of Madison.
