VIDEO: You often hear how people get labeled by what they do for work, like “He’s a police officer” or “a firefighter.” For one emergency responder in Springville, that’s harder to do. ABC4 News shares the different hats he wears, in this edition of Behind the Badge.
Suiting up for work when you’re Dakota Klauck of Springville, could easily mean three different things. Depending on the day, Klauck is a police officer, a firefighter, or an army combat medic.
“People will joke with me sometimes how do you keep anything straight? I’ve got my schedule is all over the place,” said Dakota Klauck, Springville emergency responder.
Klauck serves as a Patrol Corporal for the Springville Police Dept., an advanced EMT Firefighter with Springville Fire, and an Army Combat Medic with the Utah National Guard 145th Field Artillery Unit.
