Recently CRMCA Member, Carolina Concrete, partnered with the South Carolina Fire Academy in a joint effort to recruit new firefighters into the first responder field of work. Carolina Concrete painted a mixer fire engine red and “stickered” it with commemorative logos for display. Carolina employee and firefighter John Dunbar, Jr. drives this mixer every day.
Early in the morning of May 8th 2020, Junior was returning from a concrete delivery and spotted a small truck with its bed on fire. Quickly Junior engaged his flashers and turned his mixer blocking traffic. Junior charged his 125 gallon water tank and extinguished the fire with minimal damage to the vehicle keeping driver and passenger safe before police or fire engines arrived.
Thank you Junior, you are not only a hero but an example to all of us! God Bless Mixer Drivers! #concreteinaction
