Camano seeks firefighters
Camano Island needs more volunteer firefighters.
Camano Island Assistant Fire Chief Levon Yengoyan said that most of the country is protected by volunteer firefighters. The island was served by all volunteers until the district hired its first paid firefighter in 1991. Now 35 volunteers work alongside the 50 full- and part-time firefighters.
For new volunteers, training includes 140 hours of firefighting, hazardous materials, first aid and CPR training, and another 120 hours to become emergency medical technicians.
In a recent survey of Camano's volunteers, "service to the community" was overwhelmingly the primary reason people serve as volunteer firefighters.
For more information, call 360-387-1512.
