Pat Jarrett receives 2016 Armstrong Award

By Nona Whipple

Pat Jarrett, dispatcher for Big Canoe Public Safety at Station 3, has been named the recipient of the Armstrong Award for 2016, presented by Len Walker, senior chaplain of Big Canoe Chapel. 

This prestigious award recognizes each year a POA public service employee for outstanding service to the community.  Jarrett answers all phone calls to Big Canoe’s gates and dispatches the calls to the proper place. Fire Chief Ricky Jordan says Pat is known as “the voice of Big Canoe.”

The award is funded by the family of the late Jean and Bill Armstrong in their memory and is used to honor a public safety employee each year.
