Ian is happy to have the opportunity to work with WLFEA’s Mobile Crisis Response Unit- a proven mechanism for providing specialized assistance in appropriate situations as well as liberating our Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement resources to be available for their next call. As a school nurse, he sees first hand the challenges that many of our family, friends and neighbors navigate every day. The circumstances that make the difference between smooth sailing and catastrophe are not as great or distant as we sometimes allow ourselves to believe. To be a support to people in their time of need- be it financial, psychological, emotional or physical- is a privilege that he fully appreciates.
