Roll-in ceremony for new fire engine


South County Fire will place its newest fire engine in service with a traditional roll-in ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 29, 8 a.m. at Mariner Fire Station 11, 12310 Meridian Ave. S., Everett.

The public is encouraged to attend. “This engine will protect and serve our residents for years to come. None of this would be possible without community support,” said Interim Fire Chief Doug Dahl

During the ceremony, the public can join firefighters as they push the new engine into the firehouse. This custom dates back to the 1830s and the days of horse-drawn equipment, which could not be easily backed into the station by the horses.

South County Fire is the largest provider of fire and emergency medical services in Snohomish County, serving more than 250,000 residents in unincorporated communities and the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace.
