JR Riggs May 2018 Employee of the Month
Posted on 06/08/2018

The City of Columbia recognizes JR Riggs as the May Employee of the Month. JR has been employed by the City of Columbia for more than 12 years.  Riggs works in the Columbia Fire and Rescue Department as a Driver. JR gets Columbia firefighters to every scene carefully, quickly and without incident, which is the reason the Driver positions are promotion positions within fire service.

JR is always eager to take on more as his colleagues are all aware. At present, Riggs handles the department’s medical supplies for EMT/firefighter personnel.  He oversees procurement for medical related purchases including input on large purchases. A strong advocate of the department’s growing number of medical call response and medical program, JR continually works with department leadership to shape the medical program to be the best in the state and region.

We want to offer a special thanks to JR Riggs for his dedication to the Columbia Fire and Rescue Department and his commitment to serving Columbia citizens.
