The City of Arlington swore in three full time Firefighter / EMTs at the Tuesday, February 19, 2019 City Council meeting. Thanks to a federal grant, the City was able to hire these three two years early.
The new firefighters, Zach Hanson, Aaron Boede, and Paul Lizarraga, will be attending the Snohomish County Fire Training Academy beginning February 25 for an intensive 14-week academy hosted at South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue near Everett. They will train 40 hours a week learning skills to prepare for their first shift assignment at Arlington Fire. Congratulations and welcome aboard!
