David Potoker of Harborcreek is an e-m-t and basic vehicle rescue technician with the Harborcreek Volunteer Fire Department.

Dave's been with the department for almost ten years as the day shift person he makes sure the ambulance gets out on every day call and he runs on more than 150 calls per year...

One example of that was when Dave spent hours talking and listening to someone who had just lost a family member.

At 72, Dave is a past Lieutenant and board member, he's also a father and grandfather.

The Harborcreek Fire Department's David Potoker is this week's Hometown Hero.
