DeAnza Optimist Award Recipient Harry Franklin

Firefighter Harry Franklin received recognition from the DeAnza Optimist Club at its annual awards breakfast the morning of May 4, 2016. Each year the club makes a special effort to publicly celebrate accomplishments of selected local fire and law employees that have served their communities with distinction; in this case, with special emphasis on the Cupertino community where the DeAnza Optimist Club is based. 

Firefighter Franklin was recognized for his dedication and service within the communities he serves – both professionally and personally. 

Described as having a “servant’s heart,” Harry embodies County Fire’s motto of Courtesy and Service. As a firefighter/engineer assigned at Cupertino Station, Harry’s dedication to proving superior service to the citizens of our community is evident in his professional interactions, whether at an emergency event or elsewhere.  

Harry’s presence in the lives of those he touches has been and continues to be, quite literally, life changing. The passion he brings to all he does is immeasurable, and his devotion to public service – professionally and personally – exemplifies the spirit of public service.
