Flower Mound firefighter earns ‘Hot Stuff’ award

Brandon Barth is Flower Mound Fire Department’s emergency management officer. When a crisis comes up, he’s first on the case. During last year’s flooding of the area, Barth was in-the-know and on the scene.

For all of his work, Barth was recently honored with the “Hot Stuff” award from the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Specifically, Barth made strong efforts to promote wildfire awareness in the town. He worked with Denton County over the last year to develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan, which was a lengthy process including plan development, training and a county-wire wildfire risk assessment.

Barth has taken the plan’s concepts and incorporated them into things the community can see and hear. He worked on a fuel reduction project with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas Forest Service, and ran a door-to-door campaign educating residents in parts of Flower Mound most at risk of wildfire.

Check out this film from the town’s YouTube channel. It includes some of Barth’s work.
