    Fire District 8

    Jennye Cooper is the new public educator at Snohomish County Fire District 8 in Lake Stevens.

LAKE STEVENS -- Jennye Cooper is picking up a lot of new skills these days.
Most recently, she became a certified car-seat technician. That means she can teach parents to properly install and use child-safety seats.
Cooper is the new public educator at Snohomish County Fire District 8 in Lake Stevens.
She'll be helping the district with safety and prevention programs aimed at schools, senior-services organizations and other community groups.
Cooper, 22, lives in Lake Stevens. She previously worked as a fire district receptionist.
She's excited to get out into the community and get to work, she said.
"Everything is always, always changing, and I have to keep up on all that knowledge," she said.
One program she'll help with will be Risk Watch, the monthly safety-themed event held at Lake Stevens-area schools. Risk Watch programs are organized in part by Lake Stevens firefighters and police and the Everett Community College nursing program.
Cooper is a graduate of Lake Stevens High School and is studying for her bachelor's degree in human services from Western Washington University.
For more information about safety programs in the Lake Stevens area, call 425-212-3062. Common topics taught include smoke alarms, fire protection sprinklers and fall prevention for seniors.
