Northwest Fire / Rescue Captain Dustin Schaub has been named “outstanding firefighter” by American Legion Post #7.

Representatives from the Morgan McDermott Post #7 recognized Schaub for his “high ethical standards, can-do spirit, and mentoring of younger firefighters,” a release said.

Robert DiPietro, a battalion chief for Northwest Fire, nominated Schaub for the award.

“No one exemplifies the true traditions of the fire service as Captain Schaub displays,” DiPietro wrote. “He is the true model of the ideal firefighter.”

Schaub, a Tucson native and Flowing Wells High School graduate, became a Northwest Fire District firefighter in 1997, and a captain in 2006.

“He possesses the highest ethical standards and works very hard to perfect his craft,” DiPietro said.

Legion posts nationwide celebrated outstanding law enforcement and firefighting personnel.
