The Commendation read “Jackie Sheldon is hereby recognized for outstanding service and dedication to her community as an advocate for preparedness. In the advent of any disaster situation many lives will be saved as a result of her consistent and hard working efforts.”
In July 2010 the Pacific County Emergency Management Agency staff and Sheriff Didion nominated Jackie Sheldon for the Federal Emergency Management Agency Citizen Corp Individual Achievement Award. The Individual Achievement Award nomination and the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office Commendation illustrate how citizens can take action and do their part to be prepared. The public is a valuable resource in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters. Every day citizens like Jackie take part in community emergency planning and problem solving, model programs for use by other individuals, and show how individuals can take action to make a difference in their community.
The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency is grateful for citizens like Jackie, who are involved and willing to demonstrate and forward a personal emergency preparedness message and program throughout the year.
