Mackenzie Johnson, AEI
While checking stock levels of equipment, Mackenzie Johnson discovered a major boiler leak at a NOAA Western Region Center building. Technicians quickly shut down the boiler and cleaned the area, preventing a catastrophic and costly failure of the system and significant damage to the facility. Later that same day, Mackenzie discovered an acidic chemical placed into the wrong storage cabinet which potentially could have caused a fire. Mackenzie was at the right place at the right time and demonstrated exceptional dedication to the health and safety of her coworkers.
