Matt McCann, a volunteer Firefighter/EMT who has been with our fire district for three years, was recently awarded Top Responder. The Top Responder is a volunteer who has answered the most emergency calls in a year. For off-island volunteers like Matt, that involves an large amount of 12-hour shifts served at our main station on Bank Road. For most volunteers, they fulfill shifts around their work and family schedules. To reach this goal, Matt served an incredible 130 shifts in 2013, reflecting 1,560 volunteer hours serving Vashon residents in their hour of need. Congratulations, Matt.
