Mist-Birkenfeld RFPD Honored with SDAO Outstanding Special District Program Award
Mist-Birkenfeld RFPD was presented with the Special Districts Association of Oregon (SDAO) Outstanding Special District Program Award during the 2022 SDAO Annual Conference Awards Ceremony held virtually on February 12, 2022.
This award recognizes special districts for innovative projects and programs, outstanding safety, public information, public involvement in a district decision-making process, and outstanding achievement. Nominations were open to all Oregon special districts and collected throughout the year. The SDAO Awards Committee reviewed the submissions and selected award recipients using a scoring matrix.
Mist-Birkenfeld RFPD was selected to receive the Outstanding Special District Program Award in the 5 or fewer employees category for their innovative Community Health Integrated Paramedicine Program (CHIPP). CHIPP serves as a preventative service for the community by catching medical problems before they become 911 calls. It is also designed to provide follow-up care for recent surgeries or any other medically related issue or concern. This has saved lives by identifying serious medical issues early, and getting those individuals the help they needed, before progressing to a life threatening or deadly situation.
SDAO is excited to present this award to Mist-Birkenfeld RFPD. You can learn more about the district’s CHIPP program by watching their award video at: https://youtu.be/qV9-_6wzM5g
