GYPSUM, Colorado –Steve Carver of Big Steve’s Towing received a citizen’s award from the Emergency Services Council of Eagle County. The council cited Carver’s commitment to the safety of emergency workers, his professionalism his and efficiency on the job and dedication to supporting EMS workers.

Having driven a town truck in the valley since 1996 Carver has had plenty of opportunities to interact with the EMS personnel in the valley.

“We always hope that he (Carver) will be the one to respond to any scene we are working on,” says Mikel Kerst, battalion chief of the Eagle River Fire Protection District. “We can count on him to keep us safe and get the mess cleaned up quickly.”

Whenever possible, Carver will bring out his biggest wrecker to a crash scene and position it so that it protects emergency workers from the threat of oncoming traffic.

Along with towing hundreds of vehicles and providing on site safety, Carver has continued to support the emergency workers in our valley by providing training opportunities at his yard in Gypsum. He provides cars, trucks, passenger vans and even buses for advanced tactical training that is performed by various fire districts and other emergency services workers.

“Whatever they want I’m gonna get for them,” says Carver. “We need to support the people that keep us safe out there.”
