Meet Terrance Wright

Here is someone who has always put family and his community before himself. Terry has been a proud member of the Oriskany Fire Department for the past 25 years. He's worked his way up the ranks, from Lieutenant to Captain, but continues to show his dedication to the team, regardless of his title.

What Terry takes the most pride in, aside from protecting his community, are his two kids. His son William is an active member of the U.S. Army, who isn't afraid to throw the bunker gear on with his dad whenever he comes home. Hanna is also a member of Oriskany's Department, proud to serve alongside her father on every call.

He is always willing to help others before he helps himself. He’s one of those people who would give his shirt off his back to you if needed.

We want to thank you Terrance for all you do. You are an inspiration to your community, peers, and your kids. Thank you for your leadership and never-ending dedication to the Oriskany Fire Department.

Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in Central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officers, military, rescuers, front line workers, or any other person first on the scene.

Include their name, a picture, and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday." We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them an oil change from Jiffy Lube on Commercial Drive in New Hartford and a Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
