Marion County Fire Rescue’s Drew Rogers was awarded a $1,000 cash prize recently for going above and beyond to help others.

Rogers was one of four people from across the state to receive the award from Hialeah-based CGI Windows & Doors, part of the PGT Innovations, as part of the CGI Heroes: Celebrating Strength contest.

The four will vie for a $5,000 grand prize. The grand prize winner will be announced on June 1.

Rogers is the operations chief at MCFR. A firefighter for 20 years, he’s been instrumental in operating the mentorship program at MCFR. He helped in the effort to build a 7,000-square-foot gym, and works with students at the fire career academy.
