John Treolo, director of Communication and of the Adventist Community Services (ACS) for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Emergency Management Support Association of Kansas (EMSAK) at their annual conference in Wichita. EMSAK is a group of county emergency managers and support agencies, including ACS, who network together and work hand-in-hand during disasters.

According to Treolo, this lifetime award only goes to members serving 10 or more years and holding an officer position on the EMSAK Executive Committee. Treolo has been a member for 15 years and has served as treasurer and awards committee chairperson. “It’s gratifying when ACS is recognized by a group such as EMSAK,” Treolo said. “During disasters, it’s so important for all disaster response personnel to work together for the good of the community.”
