The King County Fire Chiefs Association Executive Board travelled to several locations in the county this week to recognize fire personnel who have gone above and beyond to serve others. Several of our personnel were nominated to receive awards through the newly developed Distinguished Service Awards program, and we are proud to announce that multiple Seattle Fire members were selected as winners. This is an incredible honor, as each of these individuals were competing against a large number of personnel nominated in each category from across the county. Congratulations to all!
