Mayor Eberhart welcomed three new employees of the Fairbanks Emergency Communications Center. The new employees join the dispatch team that works 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to make sure emergency calls are addressed promptly and efficiently. Dispatch employees go through rigorous training to make sure they are well trained to handle the many different types of calls they will receive.
Kristine wrote: My husband and I have been married for 30 years and have lived in Alaska for 26 of the 30 years. We started out in Wasilla, we then moved to Valdez before coming to Fairbanks. We have been blessed with three amazing sons and are now empty nesters. I enjoy spending time outdoors, scrapbooking, stamping and anything else crafty. Before dispatching, I did on site services for a large corporation all over Alaska. Fairbanks will be our home for a very long time.
Abigail is from San Antonio, Texas. She moved here about two years ago. Abigail recently became engaged and became an “instant mom” to three boys. She enjoys spending time with her fiancé and the boys, including taking them to events at the library, going to parks and family home movie nights. She has aspirations of becoming an FBI profiler someday and likes the idea of working her way up through the system, starting with dispatch. She’s looking forward to working in public service because she’s always wanted to help people. She’s looking forward to dedicating her life to doing just that and serving her community.
Ryan was born in Sacramento, California but moved with his family to small town Abingdon, Virginia. Ryan volunteered for the Washington County Life Saving Crew, where he formed his cornerstones of his EMS career. After skipping around the country for furthering education and experience, Ryan found a new home in the Hanover Fire Department in Fountain, Colorado. Ryan now calls Fairbanks home and looks forward to helping this community at the Fairbanks Emergency Communications Center.
Please join us in welcoming Kristine, Abigail and Ryan to the City of Fairbanks.
