MUSKOGEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A Muskogee County Sheriff's deputy has been nominated for Hero of the Month on a California insurance company's web site.

Roger Posey has been a reserve deputy for Muskogee County for the past 5 years.

Posey started his career as a volunteer firefighter at 18, then as a reserve deputy while having a full-time job. Posey also works with the Brushy Mountain Fire Department.

According to information from California Casualty, during one wildfire, Posey drove the only running water truck to nearby houses, until neighboring departments could help. His efforts saved five families' homes.

Posey's co-workers say they can always count on him, no matter what time, day or night. He also visits schools across Muskogee County to talk and interact with children about law enforcement.
