Today, North Carolina Commissioner of Insurance Mike Causey presented Captain Michael Parnell with a SAVE Award for his fire prevention efforts.
Earlier this year, Parnell assisted Community Paramedics by installing smoke alarms in the home of a client. A few months later, the home caught fire, and the family got out safely thanks to the smoke alarms.
Parnell has experience and knowledge as both a career and volunteer fire officer and has dedicated his time to mastering his craft and passing on his knowledge and experience to others. Parnell holds certifications in the areas of fire, EMS, and rescue, and is currently obtaining credentials in emergency management.
