Snohomish County Fire Training Academy

Press Release – South County Fire

On September 9, fourteen South County Fire recruits started attending the Snohomish County Fire Training Academy. They are part of an academy class of thirty-six recruits from six county fire departments. Most of the training in the 14-week program will be taking place at the South County Fire Training Tower near Mariner High School in unincorporated Everett.

Recruits train 40 hours per week to learn skills to prepare them for their first shift at the fire station including hoses, fire attack, forcible entry, ventilation, search and rescue, automobile extrication, and ladders.

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.

I graduated from the University of Washington in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts, and I majored in Creative Writing. I began working at the Lynnwood Times in April of 2019 when we released our first issue. To me, community newspapers help highlight things that don’t typically get highlighted by larger news sources. For me, I find this especially true about the arts, and I have a strong passion for the arts community and bringing information about it to the public.
