My name is Jessica Claire and I am dedicated, honest, responsible, proactive, resourceful, and most importantly a TEAM player. Over the years I have gained a significant set of skills from the Fire service to Law Enforcement. I am a hands on type of person and I always lead from the front. I always teach TEAM work and Professionalism and I would never ask someone to do something that I haven't done myself. I have been involved in many types of situations ranging from Structure Fires, Haz-Mat incidents, Medicals, Hostage situations, Water Rescues, and Natural Disasters. I currently work two full time jobs one being the St. Bernard Fire Department (approximately 23 years) and the other being the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office (approximately 21 years). I am a supervisor/leader at both jobs and take the positions seriously. Due to both of my careers I have meet many people in my lines of work which has enabled me to create a large pool of friendships and resources. I will always be there when called upon in any situation. One thing I can say is that myself or my TEAM will NOT fail, or ever let anyone down. I will always give 200 % to my employer's, and to my TEAM.
