WALL OF FAME: Click here to see all the Wall of Fame entries

Today, we're excited to introduce you to Kristen Fiacco of Vestal. Christian Schrader nominated Kristen to become a member of our First Responders Wall of Fame writing the following to us:

Kristen is our favorite local hometown hero because she always has a willingness to go the extra mile. While she has had experience as a firefighter, dispatcher, and now working as an EMT, Kristen shows day in and day out what it means to be a public servant. Whenever you call she will always be there with a bright and happy face and a willingness to help you anyway she can.

Our community is a better place because you, Kristen, are in it and we salute you and genuinely thank you for being the incredible human that you are!
