Kris Nagy - Denver, Colorado
Industry Representative, Building Construction Products
Kris is a certified EMT and firefighter, volunteering for the community of Golden, Colorado. He volunteers alongside 90 other men and women, dedicating between 36-72 hours per month responding to some of the more than 2,000 emergencies within the region annually. To stay proficient with his craft, he trains 250+ hours annually for fire, medical emergencies, extractions, swift water and high angle rescues.
Kris gives back because it is how he was raised. He takes great pride in helping make people's lives a little better during what is often one of the worst times in their life. Even after 29 years as a first responder, Kris says he's still amazed by the trust and faith strangers continue to put in him and his crew to solve their emergencies - be it critical, such as cardiac arrest, or the unusual like a duck stuck in a chimney (yes, they saved the duck). Kris also uses Caterpillar's safety culture as a platform to provide real-life safety shares through his weekly '5 Minute Friday' product updates distributed to more than 200 Caterpillar and dealer employees.
