Today, we're excited to introduce you to Emily Standfield of Waverly. Cindy Stansfield nominated Emily to become a member of our First Responders Wall of Fame writing the following to us:

Emily is my first born child. She has served 8 years total in the Army, 6 years NY National Guard and 2 years NY Reserves. She served as a 92W, water treatment specialist. She has served 4 years with Waverly/Barton Fire District as an interior firefighter as well. She’s a mom of all trades!! She is a mom to an adorable little boy named Alistair as well. She’s a hard worker and a very determined person. When she sets her mind to something she doesn’t quit until she is finished!!

Our community is a better place because you, Emily, are in it and we salute you and genuinely thank you for being the incredible human that you are!
