CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Members of the Charleston Rotary Club honored a longtime Lowcountry firefighter Tuesday.

Charleston Deputy Fire Chief John Tippett was honored for his 38 years of fire and rescue service.

Tippett, who was a first responder at the Pentagon on 9/11, said he appreciated everyone who responded that day.

"The response to the Pentagon and all the other emergency responses that happened on 9/11 were made by thousands of emergency workers," he said. "I was just one small cog in that response."

Tippett has been with the Charleston Fire Department since 2009.
