Hometown Heroes Awards Winners 2022
Trollinger Law is proud to announce the winners of the third annual Hometown Heroes Awards. This prestigious award recognizes first responders in Southern Maryland for their dedication, passion, and bravery.
We want to thank all of them for their dedication and courage in keeping us safe every day and are honored to hear the inspirational stories of many first responders across this great state, including firefighters, police officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and more.
Meet the winners of our 2022 Hometown Heroes Awards who will be recognized at First Responder Night on September 3rd, 2022, at the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs game at Regency Furniture Stadium.
Sean McKeever – Calvert County Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department / EMT
“Sean is a Calvert County local who embodies the title of “Hometown Hero.” Sean serves on active duty in the United States Air Force and is stationed at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, but that’s not nearly all. He’s also enrolled in Paramedic program at the College of Southern Maryland – La Plata. Through this endeavor Sean has performed field clinicals in Calvert and St. Mary’s County on both ambulances and chase cars, as well as hospital clinicals in the emergency department, labor and delivery, operating room, intensive care unit, and respiratory departments at Calvert Health Medical Center and University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center.
Despite an extensive work and school schedule, Sean finds time to volunteer with the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Calvert Advanced Life Support. At HVFD Sean puts in hours as a firefighter / EMT in the ambulance and fire engine, and while at CALS he serves as an EMT and emergency driver. Though this volunteer work certainly keeps Sean busy, he also finds time to fulfill his primary role as a husband and father.
The staff at Trollinger Law wish to thank Sean for his enormous effort and commitment to his community. Sean’s dedication to helping others is clearly demonstrated through his occupation, education, and volunteer record. Please join us in celebrating this Hometown Hero!”
Jason Adams – St. Mary’s County Firefighter
Jason is a St. Mary’s County firefighter who has dedicated his entire life to making our community safer through fire prevention and safety programs. He is engaged in a litany of educational and training efforts, including preparing donated structures for firefighter training and providing fire prevention instruction to our local youths. Jason supports EMS and Fire personnel by providing supervision during vehicle accidents, which ensures that victims of these accidents are treated quickly and safely.
Besides his efforts to support his fellow first responders and emergency service providers, Jason has managed numerous events and activities at the Southern Maryland Volunteer Fireman’s Association, including memorial services, a Fire and EMS parade, event security, catering, and awards for participating Fire and EMS departments. He spearheaded the effort to renovate the department’s social hall and ensured that it met county zoning and permit codes. Perhaps most excitingly for local kids, every year Jason arranges for Santa Claus himself to visit the area and wish everyone Merry Christmas from the back of a fire truck!
It’s clear to us at Trollinger Law that Jason absolutely loves helping in his community no matter the time of the day or day of the year. Please join us in thanking this hometown hero for his constant efforts to make our community a safer and more enjoyable place.
Jennifer Johnson – Charles County Police Dispatcher
Jennifer is a Police Dispatcher who has passionately served Charles County for 16 years. Jennifer demonstrates her dedication to the agency and law enforcement personnel by volunteering to raise funds for Special Olympics through Cops on Rooftops, volunteering for Law Enforcement Torch Run events, and participating in Shop with a Cop at Christmastime. Outside of her professional and charitable responsibilities, Jennifer also runs Thin Blue Line Memorial Crafts, a volunteer organization that aims to send a handmade gift to the family of every officer in the US killed in the line of duty. Jennifer’s motivation for maintaining Thin Blue Line Memorial Crafts is found on the organization’s Facebook page, where she succinctly states:
“I am a dispatcher, I come from a police family, and I will always have their back.”
Trollinger Law is thankful for Jennifer’s time, service, and compassion towards the law enforcement community both locally and nationwide. We encourage our community members to support the Thin Blue Line Memorial Crafts mission by following their Facebook page, or by checking out their website and Linktr.ee pages.
