Tom Everson worked for the Baker City, Ore., fire department for 33 years. During that time, the importance of helping others was always front and center.
“When people were going through their worst possible times they were calling the fire department,” Everson said. “We knew it was a bad situation when they called us.”
Everson has since retired from the fire department, but the desire to help others has stayed with him.
Thankfully for the residents of Baker City and its surrounding area, Everson has found a way to continue to perform a valuable service in his community. In November, he took over the job of driving the van that transports patients 75 miles from the St. Luke’s Clinic in Baker City to the St. Luke’s Cancer Institute in Fruitland.
“He’s been great,” said Corinne Ramsey, nurse manager at SLCI. “I overheard one of the patients saying, ‘Oh my gosh, he is the best driver. Did you know he used to be a fireman? We feel really safe with him.’”
It’s a part-time job for the “semi-retired” Everson, but it’s not one that he takes lightly.
