Jessica Douglas, RN received a Certificate of Merit from Nantucket Fire Department Chief Mark McDougall today for her actions on the night of Nov. 12, when Douglas quickly extinguished a fire that started in a microwave in the NCH maternity ward.
The Fire Department stated: “Her timely response in extinguishing a fire at Nantucket Cottage Hospital is a testament to her dedication. Working with NCH, NFD fire prevention outreach most recently included a fire drill and review of P.A.S.S. – the proper technique for extinguisher use. Prevention and education help keep everyone safe!”
