It is a treat to recognize one of our jurisdiction’s heroes in this month’s Staff Spotlight. Brittany Lemon, Fire Inspector I for the Cosumnes Fire Department, has worked for the CSD for 10 years. She started as a youth sports instructor and realized she wanted to work in the fire service when she took an emergency medical technician class in 2010. She moved to the Fire Department in 2012 as the Public Education Officer.
“The thing I love about working in the fire service is feeling like I am making a difference in my community,” Lemon said.
During her time as the Public Education Officer, Lemon had the privilege of teaching residents about the Fire Department’s community services. She helped parents learn how to properly install car seats and taught thousands of children and families how to be safe.
Recently, Lemon was promoted to Fire Inspector I where she engages with business owners on how to create safe environments. She said, “In my new role, I still get to enjoy keeping our community safe.”
