January 19 - It is my pleasure to introduce to you the Mechanicsville Volunteer Rescue Squad Member of the Month for the month of January 2017, Kim Winterwerp. Kim was elected as MOM due to the fact that she has jumped in head first to her volunteer commitment here with the department. Kim is currently in EMR class and will be attending EMT class later this year, as well. Kim has also been very devoted to the department, and has been running duty quite often.
Kim first heard of membership here at Co 29 through Catie Bonner and Heather Russell. Kim does currently possess her CPR certification, and also assists with selling company apparel. Kim has been a member since September of 2016. At this time Kim states that her only EMS related ambitions are to obtain her EMT certification.
Kim states that her reasoning for joining the department, is for her joy and love of helping her fellow community members. Kim stated, " You never know when you could be responding to and helping someone on their worst day. " Kim's hobbies include spending time with her family and flower gardening.
Please be sure to congratulate Kim when you see her. Thank you for your utmost devotion and willingness to serve Kim!
