Firefighter Schirado will be awarded Firefighter of the Year, as voted by her peers, for her exceptional work ethic, attention to detail and strong desire to learn. Carrie works very hard at mastering her craft and it shows in her respect and professionalism for the job daily. She has been involved with several committees that are important to the development of the department and is one of the initial Certified HRET Trainers. It is obvious Carrie not only cares about the department but the people within as well. She recently trained as a grief counselor (and immediately put that training to work). She cares about her work family and reaches out to them when gone from work or facing issues.
