The MedicAlert Foundation recognized Detective Mark Christiansen of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Norwalk Station



The MedicAlert Foundation recognized Detective Mark Christiansen of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Norwalk Station for coming to the aid of a MedicAlert Foundation member.



MedicAlert Foundation Board Member, Tom Levin, presented an Extraordinary Meritorious Service Award to Detective Mark Christiansen this afternoon at the Norwalk Sheriff's Station, 12335 Civic Center Drive, Norwalk.



Detective Christiansen was responsible for caring for an adult MedicAlert member with autism who wandered away from home. Detective Christiansen's recognition and response to the member's MedicAlert ID enabled him to instantly access the member's medical history and to identify the patient's needs. MedicAlert's emergency response team worked with Detective Christiansen to ensure that the member was safely returned home.



The MedicAlert Foundation Extraordinary Meritorious Service Award honors first responders who have recognized the MedicAlert medical ID and contacted MedicAlert's 24/7 Live Emergency Response.
