Challenge Coins


One of the many ways we honor employees who’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty is by handing out Challenge Coins. The coins are handed out to members who have worked with the District for four years or more, and who have illustrated dedication to excellence in protecting and serving our community. We weren’t able to get everyone pictured, but on this day Chief Kristan Maurer and Captain Nick McCarty made the rounds to our three stations to pass out Challenge Coins. Here’s a list of the members honored with Challenge Coins in 2020:

  • Jordan Scott
