SAVOY -- Having a day off work is something many of us look forward to, but one firefighter walks out of the Urbana fire station to volunteer at the fire house in Savoy. Firefighter Jeremy Leevy is the man Behind the Badge.

Leevey says he loves being a firefighter and he's serving more than one community. Leevey is the assistant chief at the Savoy Fire Department. It's a volunteer station, so it's only part-time. Full-time, he's a firefighter in Urbana. He says each station is different and Savoy has some unique challenges.

When he's not at work, Leevey enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf, but, as you can imagine, he says he doesn't have a lot of free time to head to the golf course.
