Educator of the Year receives key to the city

título

Por Lisa Braxton

When Lt. Annmarie Pickett, public education officer for the Worcester Fire Department in Massachusetts, was told by her supervisor that she needed to be at this week’s city council meeting, she figured city officials wanted to be briefed on the partnerships she’s been forming and outreach efforts made following a recent fire fatality.

Sin embargo, when she got to council chambers she realized that officials had something else in mind. Lt. Pickett, NFPA de 2015 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year was presented with the key to the city in recognition of her commitment to fire safety and her many achievements.

“I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “Somehow they snuck my parents and kids into council chambers.” She says she is grateful for all of the training and support she has gotten throughout her career from NFPA and other groups and organizations. She has used both Learn Not to Burn® and the Remembering When™ program in her work.

“For my partnerships and relationship building, you are seeing the results of what everyone taught me. Everyone brought me to this point. I’m very thankful.”
