APRIL 15, 2022 - In honor of the diligence and professionalism displayed by Allen’s public safety communicators, Mayor Fulk proclaimed April 10-16, 2022 as Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. During the presentation, Communications Manager Shellie Taylor recognized Communications Technician Georgina Flores, who has received two Lifesaving Awards since 2018.
Georgina’s first award was for the lifesaving CPR instructions she gave to an Allen resident who experienced sudden cardiac death while performing yard work. Her second award was given after the Collin County Sheriff’s Office called to commend Georgina on the peer support she gave to a civilian. While driving home from work, Georgina spotted this person on a bridge and stayed with them, giving support until the Collin County Sheriff’s Office arrived.
