King of C.A.R.E. – Stephen Walker
It was about 9:00 p.m. when Stephen, one of our lead fire/security technicians, received the call. One of his technician teammates was on his way home from a late-night service call when his company van ran out of gas on I-25 in Douglas County. To make matters worse, Stephen was in the middle of cleaning up a mess in his home’s crawl space from a backed-up sewer line. (Yuck!)
Even though Stephen had his hands full with his own pressing problem, he dropped everything and sprang into action to rescue a stranded teammate. He cleaned himself up, grabbed a gas can, and drove to the aid of his comrade. After pouring a few gallons into the empty van as cars sped by at 75 miles per hour, Stephen returned home and resumed his sewage remediation efforts.
Most people would have said, “Call someone else, I am up to my ankles in ****.” But not Stephen. He is always there to help anyone in need, even when he is in need of help himself! That earned Stephen the votes of his peers to be this quarter’s King of C.A.R.E. Thanks, Stephen, for always living out our Security Central C.A.R.E. values!
