For some people, their jobs are more than just vocations.

Our veterans and first responders go above and beyond to keep us safe, and we want to honor them.

The Hometown Hero for May 2019 is Tiffany Pearce.

Tiffany was nominated by Rebecca Behr, who wanted to get her publicly recognized for the amazing work she does.

Tiffany is an emergency communications specialist for the city of Rochester, New Hampshire. As a dispatcher, she works with police, fire and emergency medical services for the city, and she handles 911 and nonemergency calls for the city.

She previously worked in Carroll County in NH and has been with Rochester for over two years now. She's someone who you can always count on, is always picking up extra shifts to help people out, and will work when she's sick (even one time losing her voice and running a fever).

Tiffany will always go above and beyond to help out co-workers. To help bring up morale when needed, she's cooked dinner for dispatchers and police and has driven to work at all hours of the night if she hears a big event is happening so she can help out co-workers.

She also is an EMT and firefighter on a local department, so when she's not answering emergency phone calls she responding to emergencies on scene.

Tiffany is one of the most caring, dedicated and reliable people, and Rebecca says she never asks for any kind of recognition in return.

So thank you, Tiffany, for being a Hometown Hero.

Do you know someone who should be the next Hometown Hero we recognize? Nominate first responders (i.e. police, firefighters, paramedics, etc.) and military veterans that you want recognized here so we can acknowledge their hard work and dedication.

If they are selected, the Hometown Hero of the Month will also win a $100 gift card to Amazon and a $50 gift card to Aroma Joe's.
