never knowing if he'll be returning home that night."

Hero of the Month – February 2020

JT Huber – Simsbury Fire Department

On October 2nd 2019, 13 people, including Simsbury Firefighter of 15 years, JT Huber, were on board a vintage B-17 Flying Fortress out of Bradley International Airport. Shortly after takeoff, engine #4 failed and the plane began to descend rapidly. The plane hit the approach lights at the airfield and then crashed, killing 7 and injuring 6, including JT. In the aftermath of the crash, JT was severely injured yet managed to crawl to the plane door, roll out onto the airfield and escape the inferno engulfing the B-17. J.T. `s clothes were on fire and with the help of another passenger who had escaped they were able to tear off his clothes and put JT out. JT escaped with his life , but in doing so he broke his back in 5 places, broke 2 ribs and had burns on 48% of his body. He was rushed to the Bridgeport Burn Unit and ICU, where he stayed for 2 months recovering. JT was released on Dec 18th and sent home to Simsbury where he will deal with the effects of this horrible accident for the rest of his life. JT has served with distinction for 15 years in the Simsbury Fire Department where he provides his expertise and time to his community trying to make sure everyone else is out of harm’s way during times of crisis. JT epitomizes what we here at Our Heroes Fund want to support and help: Heroes who need our help after helping us for most of their careers and lives. We ask that whether it be 1$ or 1000$, please donate to our Hero Of The Month JT Huber.
