It's time to recognize yet another hero for First Responder Recognition. Each week, we feature local heroes in North Dakota on our websites and stations. This week, we're featuring an EMT who is selflessly dedicated to helping her coworkers and community. Let's meet Leann K.

Leann K. is the ambulance manager for Wilton Ambulance and an amazing person. The person who nominated her wants to recognize Leann for her hard work and for the amazing person that she is. Leann is someone who is always there for her team - even answering calls for help when she's off-duty. Beyond that, Leann takes care of a lot of stuff "behind the scenes." She applies for grants, she makes sure others get all of their education hours.

She's stepped up even more since the Coronavirus crisis hit. While we're in the pandemic, Leann makes sure the ambulance is fully stocked and ready to go, she makes sure the ambulance is up-to-date with the latest technology, she meets with state officials about new protocols and more. The employees at Wilton Ambulance are grateful to work with Leann.
