EVERETT, WA – This week, the Everett Fire Department released the 2018 annual report. 2018 was a year of change for the department, and the report serves to help the community understand those changes, as well as the functions and work accomplished by the department throughout the year.
In 2018, the department began a “long process of rededicating ourselves to ensure the public safety services we provide are delivered with excellence in meaningful and measurable ways. With national standards as our guide, the Everett Fire Department will continue to deliver great service while looking for every opportunity to improve,” said Fire Chief Dave DeMarco.
Dave DeMarco was named fire chief in June of 2018, having served as interim assistant chief of operations and a variety of other roles since he joined the department in 1994. Joining his command staff team last year, were assistant chief of operations, Jeff Edmonds, assistant chief of administration, Rich Llewellyn, and assistant fire chief/fire marshal, Kurtis Brown.
In the Chief’s message, DeMarco offers his gratitude to the community for supporting the 2018 Emergency Medical Services Levy Lid Lift measure. The passing of this measure highlights the trust the community places in the department. The community plays an essential role in delivering the lifesaving services the department provides.
