LS Fire Hires Firefighters and new Paramedic/Firefighter



Paramedic/Firefighter Joe Virnig, Firefighter Chris Harrott, and Firefighter David Pick

Recently the Lake Stevens Fire Commissioners unanimously approved the hiring of two career firefighters and one career paramedic/firefighter.  These individuals were hired during the last month and they started the Fire Training Academy on August 7th, where they will learn fire service principles through classroom instruction and rigorous hands-on live fire training.

These recent hires include: Firefighter Chris Harrott, Firefighter David Pick, and Paramedic/Firefighter Joe Virnig.  Both Firefighter Harrott and Firefighter Pick worked as part-time firefighters with Lake Stevens Fire, prior to hiring.  All three hires have emergency medical services training and come to Lake Stevens Fire highly recommended.

Chief Lingenfelter commented, "We welcome these new members, and look forward to their future contributions as career firefighters and paramedic for Lake Stevens Fire."
