Seneca Sluis may be well known among the parents of school children of Mendocino Unified for her role as a teacher, but now you may be seeing a different side of her. Sluis has been a special education instructor for the school district since 2014 and has touched the lives of an abundance of students.
Earlier this year, Sluis decided that being a teacher wasn’t altruistic enough and joined the Mendocino Volunteer Fire Department as a Medical Responder. She hit the ground running and quickly switched from Medical only response to full Firefighter. Since the change, Sluis has attended more training than any other department member. When she joined, Sluis was already an Emergency Medical Technician. Sluis has received a diploma in fire engineering from the State Fire Marshal and certification in Low Angle Rope Rescue Training from Rescue Solutions.
Sluis has been a big hit around the station. She has been described as enthusiastic, flexible, determined, curious, and hard-working. She is a welcome member of the Mendocino Fire family and has proven to be a competent responder on a variety of emergencies.
Please join Mendocino Fire in congratulating Sluis on completing her probational tasks and becoming a fully active member of MVFD. We’re lucky to have her.
