Justin Strickland has been serving the Immokalee Fire Department in Naples, Florida since 2005 and is currently a Battalion Chief. During his days off, he is nowhere to be found but in the woods or on the water. He married his middle school sweetheart after being reunited after 12 years. Justin owns, runs and guides for his business, Strickly Outdoors. Justin is part of Mossy Oak Prostaff and sits as an ambassador/East Coast US Rep with Wishes For Warriors.
Justin takes great pride in being able to give back to the heroes that have fought for our country. Every year Justin shares his passion for hunting the thunder chicken with veterans that join him for the spring turkey season. Justin joined Hook with the same determination to help bring awareness and change the lives of first responders. With first hand experience building his career in one of the worst call locations in south Florida, Justin knows the headaches and heartaches of nasty calls and the tolls it takes on everyday heroes. Justin is dedicated and determined to help our heroes, one life at a time. Justin has made a promise to not only protect the community in which he serves, but to protect his brothers and sisters in all branches of the first responders family and military, in some way hoping to touch as many lives as possible.
Justin is one of the original members of Hook-A-Hero and his resolve to help our heroes and put them first is what fuels his desire to be part of the Hook-A -Hero team.
