This Black History Month 2022, the Seattle Fire Department would like to recognize our Black employees, both present and former, who have served our communities.

At every level of the Seattle Fire Department, Black employees help guide this organization and we express our gratitude for their contributions.

“For me, Black History Month is a time to give thanks and reflect on so many who have come before me and have made so many significant contributions to our society. Personally, I reflect and have appreciation on these contributions daily and try to recognize how they have impacted my life.” Seattle Fire Chief, Harold Scoggins.
