Leslie Girdner moved to Frisco with her husband and young family in 2003. She is the community education coordinator at Frisco Fire Safety Town, an educational facility that focuses on teaching children safety messages to prevent injury and accidents. She manages, coordinates and conducts several programs for the Fire Department, including the Citizens Fire Academy, Frisco Fire Safety Town and the Fire Prevention Clowns.
In March 2017, in honor of Women’s History Month, the League of Women Voters of Collin County honored Ms. Girdner and five others for being outstanding leaders in their careers. Ms. Girdner shares, “The best part of my job is hearing success stories that children have learned a safety message and may have been able to use the information to prevent an injury or an accident. I am greatly honored to work with amazing people we call the Frisco Fire family. I am very thankful to the City of Frisco for giving me a chance to make a difference in the community I live in. I am honored and appreciative every day.”
Thank you for making our community a safer place, Ms. Girdner!
