Jason Barco is a firefighter who was born and raised in the capital city. His sense of pride and passion for his hometown motivates him to make a difference in his community. From an early age he was heavily involved in many community based programs. These moments helped to nurture his love for the city of Hartford. In 2008 with encouragement from his family & friends he began his career as a Hartford Firefighter. He has fully dedicated himself to giving back to those who have given so much to him. More than just a job, Jason's career as a Hartford Firefighter has allowed him to see many sides of the city that he would have never been exposed to otherwise. Helping others is his calling and he wouldn't think of doing anything else than selflessly throwing himself into the fire to save the city he loves so much.
