Employee Recognition


NCFD is proud to announce February’s Employee-of-the-Month is awarded to Fire Inspector Luis Garcia.

“Based on the following recommendation from Fire Investigator Michael Clarke, it is my pleasure to recognize you as “Employee-of-the-Month” for February 2023 with my appreciation for your outstanding demonstration of our organizational values as describe below.

I would like to nominate Inspector Luis Garcia for Employee of the Month. Luis has been tirelessly working on translating the bulletin and codes regarding Mobile Food Vendors, as well as translating the online instructions and self-survey ‘for recertification. I have been in the office working on fire and arson reports over the course of the last week, and just about every time I have been here, so has he. Luis has been instrumental to this process, as well a day to day enforcement of code regarding the mobile food vendors, utilizing his bilingual ability to clearly communicate the requirements and generally put the vendors at ease knowing that he fully understands them and can answer their concerns while going through the certification process. Luis has also taken it upon himself while out doing inspections, to make sure that the vendors are current on their payments and fully understand our requirements. H-e has been such a driving force in this area that local mobile food vendors ask about him by name at events I have worked. It is for these reasons that I believe Luis, still a relatively new inspector, has demonstrated through his actions that he believes in and embodies our mission of improving and protecting the quality of life in ouer11virc area, especially in a demographic that has been historically more difficult for us to reach!”
