A former fire chief is being nationally recognized for his leadership.
Brian McQueen, a retired fire chief with the Whitesboro Fire Department, was chosen to receive the James P. Seavey Sr. Health and Wellness Leadership Award, by the National Volunteer Fire Council.
Only four people are chosen each year to receive the award by the council.
McQueen was diagnosed with cancer from his work as a firefighter. He founded the Believe 271 Foundation, which provides financial assistance to firefighters who suffer from life threatening illnesses.
McQueen will formally receive the award at a ceremony next month in Virginia.
