April 2018 Employee of the Month
T Achorn
Travis Achorn, Communications Operator- Police Department
In recognition and appreciation for continued dedication to the citizens of Gainesville.
On Wednesday, February 21, 2018, a major ice storm hit the City of Gainesville. The Fire Department was dispatched to 72 various calls, ranging from vehicle accidents, EMS medical calls, and numerous down power lines. Throughout the entire duration of the storm, the City of Gainesville relied on Communications Operator Travis Achorn, who performed above and beyond his normal duties. Travis was the lead Communication Operator during the storm and handled the stressful and very busy situation in a professional and calm manner. He handled more calls during that shift than any other shift in his career. Travis has proven that he can handle a highly stressful situation and is a huge asset to the City of Gainesville.
