VAN ETTEN, NY (WETM) – Each week WETM recognizes first responders from around our area who work hard every day to keep us safe and healthy. This week we would like to thank a responder that has set the standard for courage and work ethic.

Jamie Coats has been with Community Fire and Rescue for more than 10 years and recently received the EMS Provider of the Year Award for responding to 90% of EMS calls.

Jamie is the kindest, hardest working member in our department. When I started 5 years Jamie was and still is my mentor. I’ve watched her on Ems calls and on the fire scene. Her courage and work ethic is never ending. She truly deserves to be recognized for her abilities. Our department is lucky to have her.
