Tahoe Forest’s Reugebrink nationally honored

Forest Safety Officer Michelle Reugebrink of the Tahoe National Forest has been named one of America’s Firefighting Heroes by Baskin-Robbins and the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation.

Serving her 24th year at the Tahoe National Forest, Reugebrink is a first responder and recently created a wildland blaze safety video for fire stations nationwide. She was the only wildland firefighter among the 31 recognized.

A panel from Baskin-Robbins and the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, along with national fire service representatives selected 31 individuals who met the nation-wide nomination criteria.

The safety officer was selected based upon her nomination by the U.S. Forest Service’s national Fire and Aviation Management office and has been recognized on the Baskin-Robbins Web site http://www.baskinrobbins.com.

As one of the honorees, Reugebrink will scoop ice cream during Baskin-Robbin’s 31 Cent Scoop Night from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. April 30 at the Baskin-Robbins at 8690 Sierra College Blvd., Roseville.
