Firefighter injured, terminated from job
Firefighter Nickolas Prokosa said he's being treated like "yesterday's trash"
By Jillian Benfield
AUGUSTA, Ga — Taking to the streets to fight for his job. Nickolas Prokosa held this sign in front of the Richmond County Court House Tuesday hoping people would take notice of how he says the city has treated him.
"Because of me doing my job that I loved tremendously, because of me doing my job, I'm just yesterday's trash," Prokosa says.
Prokosa was a firefighter for the city of Augusta. He says he was injured on the job back in 2011, then a few months ago he received this notice saying he would be terminated. "This is just my last reach for help," he says.
