A member of the Brighton Area Fire Authority and head of the Howell High School Fire Academy has been named Michigan’s Fire Instructor of the Year.

The Michigan Fire Service Instructors Association honored Lt. Tom Kiurski, a member of the Brighton Area Fire Authority and head of the Howell High School Fire Academy

According to a story on WHMI, BAFA Fire Chief Mike O’Brian said that while Kiurski is very deserving of the “huge honor,” it only scratches the surface of all he has done.

Kiurski joined the Brighton Area Fire Authority in 2012 after retiring from the City of Livonia, and he has been teaching at various fire academies since 1989.

Proof of Kiruski’s teaching skills at the Howell program, which is now in its seventh year, is that the HHS Fire Academy that ended in May of 2019 had a 100 percent pass rate on the practical and written portions of the certification exam.
