Pat Furr, VPP Coordinator/Safety Officer and Technical Consultant for Roco Rescue, was honored last Friday with the North Dakota Safety Council's Duane Kuehn Outstanding Safety Professional award, the organization's top honor.
Over the course of his career, Pat has worn and continues to wear a variety of hats but his favorite role, he says, is sharing what he's learned about rescue and safety with an audience through a variety of platforms, from the written word to presentations at industry conferences. "If I can communicate my experiences to those who listen, I feel I am able to keep them safe," Furr says.
Please join us in congratulating Pat on this prestigious honor
