2021 Firefighter of the Year

Firefighter Xavier Miranda

Temple Terrace Fire Department

Firefighter Miranda began working for the City of Temple Terrace Fire Department 5 years ago starting in June of 2016. In a very short time, he has established himself as one of our most dependable and hardest working firefighters. The past year has brought with it a relentless pace of Covid related responses, precautionary protocols, and stress. During that time, he has continued to be a positive and upbeat presence on his shift and within the department. Firefighter Miranda simply goes above and beyond expectations as part of his day-to-day routine. He has become an example of what Temple Terrace Fire Department strives to be for its community. Miranda is married to his wonderful wife Kisha for 3.5 years and has a beautiful four month old son Elijah.
