Two members of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department were recently recognized for outstanding academic achievement and going above and beyond the call.
Mary Cramer, Life Safety Education, was honored by Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) with a Partner Award. The award recognizes groups and individuals who go above and beyond expectations in working with NCS in strengthening the overall well-being of individuals and communities. Mary has work tirelessly with local senior centers to promote fire and injury prevention in an effort to keep our residents healthy and safe.
Captain II David Winter, Communications, was honored by Acting Fire Chief John Caussin for receiving certification as an Executive Fire Officer (EFO) through the National Fire Academy. The program is intense and involves taking four graduate and upper-division-baccalaureate equivalent courses taken over a four-year period. Each course is two weeks in length. Captain Winter was then required to complete an Applied Research Project, that related to FCFRD, within six months after the completion of each of the four courses to receive this prestigious designation as an EFO.
Congratulations to Mary and David!
