Deanna Gratzer thanked for her commitment to the community

The Board of Fire Commissioners of King County Fire Protection District 40 passed a resolution Thursday January 14, 2016 commending Deanna Gratzer for her years of service and dedication to the Fire District. Deanna was hired by the District in 1995 as the District's Secretary and was subsequently promoted to Administrative Assistant in 1998. In 2008 Deanna was hired by the Kent Fire Department, but continued to work part-time for District 40 as the District Secretary/ Financial Officer until September 30, 2015. The Commissioners thanked Deanna for her numerous roles and commitment to the community we serve.

A Note From The Chief

public outreach

Public Outreach is a big part of our service delivery to the community and 2015 was no different. The Fairwood Station was very busy making personal contact with the citizens by providing the following :

  • Firefighters provided CPR instruction to 165 citizens of the Fairwood area.
  • Station 17 crews screened 1,115 people in District 40 during Heart Month.
  • Station 17 participates in the Adopt-A School programs and crews were involved in activities at Meeker Middle, Renton Park Elementary, Lindberg HS, Fairwood Elementary, Rainier Christian, Ridgewood Elementary, and Northwood Middle, just to name a few.

Public Outreach is just one example of how Renton Fire & Emergency Services is committed to its vision of working to make our community safer, healthier and stronger.

Sincerely, Chief Mark Peterson
Fire District 40/ Renton Fire Dept.
Emergency Services Administrator
