    Caribou Firefighter Scott Harmon, is a one-year paid call member said he decided to became involved with the fire department. “Following the personal loss of family members in a house fire, I felt compelled to become involved in order to help others,” he said.     Firefighter Scott, 35, is employed as a truck driver and does janitorial work when he’s not at the fire station and also enjoys snowmobiling, four-wheeling and boating.
    The Caribou resident stated his favorite food is pizza but don’t make it with tomatoes, as those are his least favorite food. He’s a fan of rock music  but doesn’t like jazz.
    Firefighter Scott would like community members to understand that, “Firefighting training requires a big commitment. The role of the firefighter has become increasingly stressful, however, there is a great deal of satisfaction in helping others in their time of need.”
