They also spend countless hours of their time risking their lives to save others and to protect property for very little pay.
Over the next several months, we will be spot-lighting each of them in this section, paying tribute to their dedication, their families’ patience, and their employers’ contribution in allowing their respective employees to serve our communities on a moment’s notice. This is who they are…
Justin Ambrosino is just one of the 85 dedicated volunteer firefighters to serve the West Stanislaus Fire Protection District. Ambrosino has been a volunteer firefighter for the last three years, and is currently assigned to assist Patterson’s station at 344 W. Las Palmas Ave.
He first began his career in the fire industry in 2008, and has spent five years serving his time as a volunteer for the District.
Ambrosino said he became a volunteer firefighter, “because doing what you love and enjoy does not require payment.”
His current aspirations are to join the fire service as an employee in the near future.
Ambrosino is also a second generation firefighter who has graduated from MJC with an associate degree in fire science. He plans to enroll in a Bachelor of Science fire program in the spring.
