Each Friday morning at 6:30 a.m., 98.1 KHAK's Brain & Courtlin pay tribute to an Eastern Iowa first responder. The weekly honoree receives a $25 gift card to Wild Hogs Saloon and Eatery in Walford and a $25 gift card to Honor and Respect.

Today we honor Chris Oldfather, who was nominated by Lisa Schmidt. The entry reads:

Chris is a very hard-working person. He’s not only on the Coggon volunteer fire department, but he’s also a deputy sheriff for the Linn County Sheriff’s Department as well as a devoted husband and father of two. He always puts others first and is very supportive and generous. He deserves to be recognized for the wonderful work he does and the wonderful person he is!


Our First Responder Friday winners are selected from nominations submitted by you! You can make a nomination below.
