Rep. Swearingen honors Javenkoski as First Responder of the Year
By River News Staff


A local firefighter received a special honor earlier this month at the state capitol.

Representative Rob Swearingen (R-Rhinelander) recognized James "Jim" Javenkoski as the 34th Assembly District First Responder of the Year at last week's Assembly floor session, the legislator's office announced in a press release.

Javenkoski is a member of the Pine Lake Fire Department, serving as a first responder and volunteer firefighter.

"Being able to recognize Jim for his years of service to our community on the Assembly Floor last week has been an honor," Swearingen said in the press release. "His commitment to serving others in need makes him incredibly deserving of being our area's First Responder of the Year."

The Assembly recognized first responders from every corner of the state during last week's floor session.

Nominated for their heroic actions, professional achievement, body of work, or length of service, nearly 90 State Representatives awarded first responders of the year from their respective districts. After being recognized on the floor, first responders and their families attended a reception in the capitol.

"It was a truly special day to witness so many of Wisconsin's bravest gathered together on the Assembly floor," continued Swearingen. "I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Jim and all of the first responders who serve our communities every single day."

In addition to honoring the first responders, the Assembly also approved a resolution recognizing Oct. 28, 2019, as First Responders Appreciation Day in Wisconsin.

Swearingen represents the 34th Assembly District, which includes Oneida, Vilas, Florence and a portion of Forest County.
