Chris Dupont graduated in 2012 from Thornton Academy in Saco. For several years, Chris has been a volunteer firefighter. During high school, Chris was able to participate in a firefighter program and he fell in love with it. Currently, he is a volunteer firefighter in Addison, Maine and he couldn’t imagine having a better job! Chris will be going for his Firefighter 1 and 2 Certification at the end of the year.
As a SUFU member, he has also become an invaluable volunteer at the Blue Hill Land Trust. He is in charge of tracking the growth and development of several plants at the land trust. In the near future, he will also be a part of the grounds crew at the land trust. In addition he will be a part of the Downeast Coastal Conservancy in the future. About his time at the land trust, Chris says, “being able to work outside and get exercise at the same time is a dream come true.”
