We honor the life and service of Bellevue (WA) Fire Department Captain Jeanette Woldseth, Washington state's first career female firefighter. Thank you for paving the way for so many women who have and will choose to serve their communities as firefighters.

A father and mother from Port Orchard helped save their young son’s life, performing CPR when they found him unresponsive in their home. Emergency responders from South Kitsap Fire & Rescue arrived moments later. We are so pleased to read that the family is doing well! #CPRSavesLives
Last Friday, paramedic students participated in the Sick/Not Sick training drill. They were challenged with dozens of scenarios where they had to determine the severity of a patient’s illness, and whether or not they required immediate care and transport to the emergency room. Quick decision-making is one of the most critical skills for paramedics to master. Thank you, Shoreline Fire Department, for hosting the drill. #PMTClass44 Bellevue (WA) Fire Department King County Medic One Arlington WA Fire Dept East Jefferson Fire Rescue Snohomish County Fire District #1 Everett Fire Department Marysville Fire District
