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 Tim Deutmeyer, who was nominated by Jared Brunsmann! The entry reads:

"Tim is a very dedicated fireman and a huge asset to the Dyersville community. He started out as a fireman for the first few years of his career, and then quickly climbed the ladder to Captain. Then, shortly after, he became Assistant Chief. Tim is always willing to lend a hand, and is the first to the station when the tones go off. He is very knowledgeable and is great at teaching the younger fireman all the techniques needed to be a safe and great firefighter. Dyersville Fire Department takes great pride in our organization, and Tim is the kind of guy that will keep that going for years to come."

Jared Brunsmann

Congratulations to Tim! We thank him for his service and dedication to our community!
