You were selected as the Fire and Rescue Department's Team Member of the Month for March 2013 for coming to the aid of a stray dog outside of the station. You brought the dog into the station and noticed that there was no identifying collar. You located a dog crate and blankets, placed the dog in the crate with water, and notified animal control.
Later that morning a picture was taken of the dog and missing flyers were created. You went door to door in a nearby neighborhood distributing the flyers while one of you remained at the station to care for the dog. You were able to locate the neighbor of the dog's owner retrieving a name and address of the dog's owner, but no phone number. You left your information with the neighbor and returned to the station. After returning, you continued to try and find contact information for the owner by looking up their land records and establishing their identities on social networks. As you were getting ready to contact the owner, a family member, who was alerted by the neighbors who you had previously spoken with showed up to claim the dog. The family member indicated that they had been looking for the dog since she escaped the previous evening.
You developed and executed a temporary resolution to keep the dog safe while attempting to locate the dog's owners which allowed them to claim their dog without any serious consequences.
Your actions exemplify the County and Department's visions and values with your efforts being emblematic of the Department's personalized delivery and ultimate performance values, and the County's vision of doing the right thing for the customer and community every time. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
