Our very own Kristen Jackson was honored on May 30, 2013 at an Awards Ceremony for Portland Fire and Rescue due to her efforts in saving a guests life winter 2012 while he was attending a Christmas Party. We are so proud of Kristen and her quick thinking that day. Her first aid training and confidence helped an individual when he needed it the most. That is true customer service and a gesture of good will that has not gone unmissed!
