Each month, we highlight the heroes who work tirelessly to keep us safe. This month’s recipient is Nick Christensen from the Pocatello Fire Department! Here is what Pocatello Fire Chief David Yates, who nominated Nick, had to say:
“Nick was the step up Battalion Chief during the recent Bitterroot fire in Pocatello. The fire was very fast moving and two homes were quickly involved. Nick was the Incident Commander (IC). His decisions, actions and operational experience guided the crews to a quick containment of the fire and prevented the spread of the fire to other homes in the area.
Nick’s calm thoughtful demeanor is always present, both in the daily routine and during crisis. He is well respected by his crew, platoon, staff and the department as a whole. Nick always goes above and beyond with little or no expectation of recognition.
Nick is an all around solid citizen.”
We are so grateful for Nick and his sacrifices! Congratulations for receiving the Above the Call award!
