First Responder of the Month (January 2022) – Brittany Thrower

January’s First Responder of the Month is Brittany Thrower of the Sylacauga Ambulance service.

Thrower is a paramedic. She volunteered at the Fayetteville Fire Department in 2015 before receiving her paramedic’s license in February 2019 from Jeff State.

Thrower’s mother was a nurse which inspired her to pursue a profession in the medical field. She hopes to one day become a flight medic. Brittany is dedicated and truly passionate about what she does and it shoes in her care for her patients.

“It means a lot to me to serve this community,” said Thrower. “I grew up in this community, and I’m grateful that I can make a difference.”

Thank you Brittany Thrower for your service!

The First Responder of the Month is presented by Radney-Smith Funeral Home. Each First Responder of the Month receives a $50 VISA gift card from First Bank of Alabama.
