Lincoln County Public Safety Leader in Need of Support
The reason I am writing to you is to see if we can help one of
our own? Kathy Blagdon has been instrumental in many aspects of the
911 environment. She has played and served in many capacities and is a
true leader within our center. Recently, she has come forward with news
to us they have found two tumors on her spine, which are cancerous.
She has already begun various treatments and will be undergoing a stem
cell implant during the month of January. Kathy has been involved in
911 for over 29 years! She has also been a reserve officer for the
Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, and the Damariscotta Police
Department. She is a past president of NENA, has been a volunteer for
many years on numerous committees, and currently serves as the liaison
with Maine EMS overseeing the Emergency Medical Dispatch training within
our center. She also was most recently proud of her accomplishments of
completing and becoming a Registered Public Safety Leader!
She is truly a great leader within the industry. I hope there
is some way we can help her during this difficult time, as she is so
very deserving of it. We are planning a benefit dinner and auction
within our community on Saturday, January 11, 2014.
**If anyone can step up and make a quilt for Kathy, that would be wonderful. Please let me know**
