Elena Moffly, a Weston EMS crew chief and EMT, received the Phyllis McHattie Gridley Service Award on May 4 at the Building Hope Foundation’s 20th anniversary gala.

An EMS volunteer since 2016, Ms. Moffly was recognized for outstanding community service work, including her contributions during the pandemic, when she single-handedly responded to almost 50 percent of over 1,000 calls to 911.

She is also responsible for procurement of medical supplies for EMS. Last year, she was awarded the Cardiac Arrest Save Unit Citation by the Weston Volunteer Fire Department.

She is the first recipient of this award, which honors Phyllis McHatttie, who returned to work as a head neonatal ward nurse and in hospital administration after having six children and spending a lifetime giving her time, energy and leadership skills to those in need.

Ms. Moffly, a longtime Weston resident, lives with her husband Jonathan and their five children. She works with Mr. Moffly at Moffly Media as Business Manager, Executive Management.

In her spare time, Ms. Moffly plays golf and flies airplanes. She earned her private pilot’s license 13 years ago, and is a member of the Flying 20 Club based at Danbury Municipal Airport.
