    FF/AO Chambless has been assisting with the Miracle League for two years. During this time he had a vision of different ways the fire service could assist. He has demonstrated self-motivation to take on additional responsibilities and to go beyond expectations without being asked.

On Saturday, 29 October 2016, the day of the Miracle League of Wilmington had their event, FF/ AO Chambless was responsible for recruiting 39 volunteers (Big Buddies), and assisted in the facilitation of 120 children/ adults. He worked with internal and external stakeholders and created a shared vision of service and built a sense of common purpose.

FF/ AO Chambless is an excellent example of New Hanover County's mission statement; "New Hanover County is committed to progressive public policy, superior service, courteous contact, judicious exercise of authority, and sound fiscal management to meet the needs and concerns of our citizens today and tomorrow." #Congrats #StellarAward #CommunityService #JoshChambless #NHCFR
