Emmy Awards

Colorado Springs Firefighter Steve Schopper has a trophy that you don’t associate with a normal firehouse trophy case. Schopper won an Emmy Award for his documenting fire scenes.

According to KHON2

Schopper is the video and audio specialist for Colorado Springs Fire Department.

“You don’t see a lot of videographers that are assigned to a fire department,” he said. “That’s a sign of a very progressive department, and one that knows that there’s value in this newer technology … to be used for training purposes … and to become better firefighters and serve the public better.”
