Technician of the Year
In a time of need, Bailey Bakouris stepped up to ensure the Kyle Fire Department’s child passenger safety program remained Texas-strong.
Bakouris was quick to jump in and fill a leadership role when the department’s coordinator stepped down. Even though she was a relatively new Technician at the time of this transition, she was able to seamlessly manage and promote the program and keep the Kyle Fire Department’s monthly car seat check schedule on track. The department partners with Dell Children’s Medical Center through its Kids in Cars program.
She encouraged three firefighters to become trained as Technicians. In addition, she fielded calls and worked in a virtual environment to assist parents and caregivers during the pandemic. For her efforts, Bakouris is recognized as the recipient of the Child Passenger Safety Technician of the Year Award presented by the National Child Passenger Safety Board. The award is sponsored by Toyota Motor North America.
