A MacGyver is someone who "Makes or repairs an object in an improvised or inventive way, making use of whatever items are at hand." Cody Dickerson has been referred to as our MacGyver. He is someone who is mechanically inclined, attentive to detail and loves a good challenge. Everyone around here acknowledges that Cody is a multifaceted individual, the "Swiss Army Knife" of our F.I.R.S.T. tool kit.
Cody, has been with F.I.R.S.T. for two years now and is one of our rescue supervisors. He recently became an EMT and is also taking courses in order to become a Plant Operator. He stays busy, it seems that if he is not working he's studying.
His managers noted that he is a knowledgeable employee, but he is also willing to ask questions if he needs further clarification. They also remarked on his appearance, Cody always presents himself in a clean cut, respectable way. These qualities are useful and appreciated on any team, and also noted by our clients.
Cody thanks for all the hard work you put in, and for being part of the team!
