Scott Luedeman/City of Prescott
Nominated by Dennis Light
Scott distinguished himself as the division chief with oversight for the Prescott Fire Department Professional Services Division. He’s a seasoned professional who’s responsible for the department training regimen for “all-risk” response to include fire suppression, emergency medical services, hazardous material, technical rescue and aircraft rescue firefighting. During the recent visit by President Trump he was responsible for incident command in conjunction with the Prescott Police Department. He led the response to a multiple-casualty incident there involving 60 patients, almost all suffering heat-related illness and some in life-threatening condition. Scott was instrumental in ensuring all patients were provided with a medical assessment and in turn triaged for the possibility of transport. He worked with resources not only from the Prescott Fire Department but also Lifeline Ambulance, all the local police agencies, the United States Secret Service, and President Trump’s campaign team. This was the largest “mass-casualty” event ever experienced in Prescott.
