This past weekend, nearly 40 women participated in a two-day workshop exposing them to the many varied activities that careers in fire and EMS offer. Designed for women by women, this is the 4th such workshop sponsored by King County EMS and its regional partners for women to explore the world of fire and EMS - learning CPR and firefighting tasks, watching demonstrations and participating in hands-on training. Q&A discussion panels allowed women firefighters and paramedics from various agencies around the county to share their experiences about serving their communities. Over 70 women from the region have participated in past workshops, some of whom are now working full-time in this career. The next workshop is scheduled for late April, 2020.

2019 Annual Report

The EMS Division's 2019 Annual Report showcases the variety of disciplines needed to pursue excellence in serving our community. Every year, it allows us to highlight those lesser seen programs and activities that help make the "lights and sirens" part of our system so effective. As the final year of this levy period comes to a close, the 2019 report provides us the perfect opportunity to reflect on how our initiatives have become deeply rooted in our everyday practice.
