Mike Neff is the Emergency Management Director and Fire Department Deputy Chief in Clinton. As a first responder, he answers to any emergency call. When COVID struck his town, he responded to this crisis, too. Mike led a team of volunteers, setting up help sessions to get people registered for vaccine appointments on the website. These sessions were especially necessary for those without computers or who had difficulty navigating the process. He then made sure these residents had transportation, called people when he found available timeslots, also giving out PPE and test kits to be distributed all over town. Mike filled a gap by stepping up to the plate, during an urgent and volatile time resting on the need to be vaccinated to get life back to normal. The Deputy Chief continues to exemplify a work ethic of unwavering loyalty to his community.
