The Clover Park School District (CPSD) Board of Directors commemorated Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance at its Sept. 11 board meeting by honoring West Pierce Fire and Rescue for their leadership and support in response to a recent fire that affected CPSD families.
Deputy Chief Mike Boltz and Battalion Chief Nic Britton, who served as incident commander at the fire at Jamestown Estates, accepted the honor and were commended for their service.
“They are the backbone of our community, serving others and oftentimes helping us in our direst moments of need,” said School Board President Alyssa Anderson Pearson. “We greatly appreciate the efforts of West Pierce Fire and Rescue for their bravery and heroic service to the Lakewood community in response to the recent fires.”
Annually on Sept. 11, we celebrate Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance to honor the brave first responders who selflessly rushed to support others in response to the attacks on our nation. We also honor the heroism of our emergency responders who provide essential services in response to crisis and proactively work to ensure the safety of our community.
