“Our young people are our future”: an agent recognized for his community action and his mentorship | Local News






Travis Babcock, who has been a firefighter for 27 years, received the Spring Lake Fire Department’s Firefighter of the Year award for 2021.




SPRING LAKE TWP. — From firefighting to policing to leading a local scout troop, one thing that has always been clear to Travis Babcock is that his passion is service and mentorship.

As a full-time Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office deputy and Spring Lake on-call firefighter – as well as a full-time scout leader, father and husband – Babcock stays busy not only caring for the community, but also to educate and give back. That’s why the fire department awarded him the 2021 Firefighter of the Year award.
