Protecting Your Town: Blake Zwinggi
This firefighter has a passion for helping.
Blake Zwinggi may seem laid back, but he has a very intense job. He's a North Andover Firefighter.
Zwinggi has been a member for the Fire Department for seven years.
"I like to help people," he said. His wife Keri is also in the business of helping the community. She's a teacher at North Andover High School.
Helping people under stressful conditions is easier when you're in good company. The other firefighters seem to tease him relentlessly but it's all in good fun.
"We have a good group of guys," he said. "We have a good camradery. It's also good to be with the community."
Zwinggi's most memorable moment on the Fire Department?
"I would say performing CPR on someone," he said. "A guy at The Willows was playing racketball and had a heart attack, and we brought him back."
