On Thursday, Oct 11, 2012, the Mooresville-Lake Norman Exchange Club honored David Brooks, Assistant Fire Marshall for the Mooresville Fire Department as Firefighter of the Year. Brooks was introduced by Exchange Club member and current Fire Marshall for the Town of Mooresville, Gary Styers. The honoree has been with Mooresville Fire-Rescue since August 8, 2003. Previously, he served as Assistant Fire Marshal for the Winston-Salem Fire Department from 1981 until 2000. Several of his fellow firemen were on hand for the luncheon as Brooks was surprised with a plaque and the special thanks from the club for a job well done.
