Camano Fire welcomes 6 new career firefighters

Jan. 16, 2023

Six new career firefighters officially joined Camano Fire on Jan. 15.

These new full-time personnel bring a diverse set of skills and experience to the department, with some joining as lateral hires and some joining as entry-level firefighters.

Our entry-level firefighters will spend three months at the fire academy beginning in February. After graduation in mid-May, they will rejoin their shifts.

We were able to hire these firefighters thanks to funding from the levy lid lift voters approved last November.
