Vancouver man helps fight fires in Oregon

The Columbian

ORCHARDS — Vancouver resident Lawrence Cavallero recently stepped up to help contain the Riverside Fire, east of Salem, Ore. Cavallero, a Comcast employee, helps on the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team and has been on many missions, including in Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey flooded residents’ homes in 2017. “I’ve always had a passion for helping in circumstances where I can make a difference,” Cavallero, who served in the Marine Corps for six years prior to employment at Comcast, said in a news release. Cavallero saw an Instagram post seeking volunteers to help fight fires; the next day, he went to Molalla, Ore. “Lawrence gives his all in everything he does, from being a top sales executive to helping other in times of need,” said Chris Nordby, Cavallero’s supervisor. “I’m always grateful to have him part of my team and as a friend.” Though there are two Comcast Xfinity store locations in Clark County, Cavallero operates out of office on the company’s business sales team.
