I am involved with Angela Flintz through Elgin Township TRIAD. Elgin Township TRIAD is an important organization in Elgin, which is the link between law enforcement, Senior Community Resources and Seniors to educate and reduce crimes against senior citizens, as well as developing an open & trusting relationship between seniors citizens, law enforcement and community agencies. In a short time, Angela has taken a leadership role as the Treasurer of this organization. She helped organize a new and updated brochure for Elgin Township TRIAD as well as attended this year’s local TRIAD round table conference and the IL State TRIAD conference. She was a presenter at TRIAD’s April 2016 Senior Safety Academy demonstrating basic CPR techniques to over 100 seniors. She also was given a Civilian Fire Chief award in February 2016 for her assistance to the Elgin Fire Department in helping a senior TRIAD member in an emergent medical situation which happened at an actual Elgin Township TRIAD meeting. She is an asset to this organization and this community. As a Registered Nurse, she shines as a compassionate and caring person willing to jump in and help where needed. In my position as an Elderly Service Officer at the Elgin Police Department, I make referrals to families who are looking for assistance for family members and she is always on my list.
