QDC announces first ever Employee of the Month

Quonset Employee of the Month Template

Congratulations to the Quonset Development Corporation’s very first Employee of the Month – Eric Perreault! Eric serves as Pier Master at the Port of Davisville, where he carries out the safety and security protocols required by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Last month, when a line handler fell from Pier 1 into 40-degree water, Eric sprang into action. He retrieved a life ring and threw it down to the worker, providing buoyant support until the worker was safely guided onto a boat and treated by North Kingstown EMS.

“Eric stayed calm, used his training, and ensured that the rescue was completed quickly and safely,” said Steven J. King, P.E., managing director of the QDC. Perreault’s heroic quick thinking was publicly recognized recently by the QDC Board of Directors.
