Greenwood Rural Firefighter, Andrew Crockett, has served his community for the last five years. Crockett joined the department with the help of fellow firefighter, Chris Wood, who encouraged Andrew to apply.

Crockett is a Greenwood native; graduating from GHS in 2012 before going to Arkansas Tech, where he studied business administration. Crockett works full time as a maintenance technician.

Andrew stated that after attending a couple of meetings with the fire department he made the decision to join. “I have loved serving on the department,” said Crockett. “I’ve enjoyed serving the community and being able to give back.”

Crockett serves as the secretary for the department.

Andrew and his girlfriend, Cindy Swearingen are getting married in March. The couple have three kids: Catelynn, Christina and Case.
