March 2015 - Officer Joe Carpenter
Officer Joe Carpenter
The Novi Public Safety Administration would like to extend their appreciation and congratulations to Fire Protection Officer Joe Carpenter on his nomination and selection as the Novi Public Safety Employee of the month, March 2015. Fire Protection Officer Carpenter was nominated by Lt. Korzeniowski and selected by the Implementation Committee for his dedication, flexibility, thoughtfulness and professionalism.
On February 19, Fire Protection Officer Carpenter was at Novi Fire Station 1, preparing to leave the building to attend the annual awards ceremony. As he was walking out, a civilian female entered the Fire Station and asked for assistance. She explained that her vehicle wouldn’t start and she had nowhere else to turn for help. Although it was extremely cold that evening and he was wearing his dress uniform, Fire Protection Officer Carpenter immediately agreed to assist her. He drove your personal vehicle and used the tools he keeps in your trunk to work on her automobile, eventually getting it started.
This is a small example of his commitment to public service. Fire Protection Officer Carpenter is a stellar reflection of the Novi Fire Department and his co-workers who dedicate themselves to public safety. Joe’s professionalism continues to maintain the highest levels of service provided by the members of the Novi Fire Department. Because of his efforts it is with great pride that we join our Public Safety Team, and the Novi Community in recognizing Fire Protection Officer Joe Carpenter’s outstanding work.
