Above his normal duties as an engineer, David is also the team leader for the Fire Explorer program, taking young individuals and allowing them to experience the team concept of the fire service. He serves as a leader, mentor, and role model, teaching these young individuals a range of skills, from properly rolling a fire hose, to effective job interview skills.

He single-handedly oversees the training and certification maintenance for the entire department because of his passion for helping the community and the fire department. David is an outstanding employee, always setting the bar higher for himself and others.
Lee consistently exhibits patience, understanding, and empathy to everyone that she encounters. She handles every customer issue with care and concern, and works quickly to resolve the issue in a fair and expedient manner. Lee manages to handle many customer concerns and problems; supervise the billing and collections and meter staff; and monitor the AMI system and the utility billing system with effortless grace and skill. Lee played a critical role in the transition to the new utility billing and AMI systems, and the department would not be as far along today if it had not been for her tenacity and dedication. Lee continues to expand her knowledge and goes beyond what is required to seek solutions to problems without being asked. It is an honor and pleasure to work with Lee each day. Lee is a great example of true professionalism to staff and coworkers, and always shares the best of herself with others.
Way to go David and Lee!
