Idaho Power Application Development Analyst Angela Creason recently received the American Heart Association (AHA) of Idaho’s Volunteer of the Year Award. Creason was selected for her dedicated work volunteering at major events including Community CPR Day, Go Red for Women and the Heart Walk. She also makes decorations, raises money and shares her survivor story for the AHA.
In 2014, AHA Idaho successfully supported legislation requiring every high schooler to learn CPR and be trained on an automated external defibrillator (AED) before graduation. After learning about the legislation, Angela took on a new challenge and has been raising money to ensure every school in Idaho has an AED on campus. Idaho Power employees, including line crews, Angela and her husband, attend annual CPR training. It has helped save lives — both customers and employees — across the service area.
Through her hard work, Angela is eager to continue her mission for all Idahoans to be heart healthy.
