Military, police officers, firefighters, paramedics are the unsung members of our community who put their own lives on the line to protect and serve us and we're on a mission to make sure that we properly thank them for their selflessness by sharing their stories with you.

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!
