Message from the Chief

Even as we Evolve and Change
Our Mission Remains the Same

The fire service is an industry steeped in tradition and history of dedication and sacrifice. The role of the fire department in communities around the country is focused on ensuring a safe and vibrant community for people. As our communities have changed, the fire service has evolved and changed significantly over the years seeing new services and procedures being implemented regularly.  Despite these changes in the fire service, the WHY of the fire service has remained constant. The WHY of the fire service is to compassionately take care of people in need. WHAT we do and HOW we do it will change, WHY we exist never will. Regardless of what the need may be, we will always take care of people with professionalism and compassion.

It is an honor and a privilege to be selected as your new fire chief and to serve the citizens of our communities. I am excited to serve as your fire chief and to be a member of a team of professionals who believe in compassion, integrity, and excellence. The men and women of the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority (PSRFA) are a team of dedicated professionals committed to taking care of people and working to build a safer community for all.

As your fire chief, my commitment to you is that the “WHY” for the PSRFA will always be to provide professional and compassionate care to people in need.  We are dedicated to excellence in all we do through constant improvement, innovative solutions, and safe operations.  The PSRFA will be a trusted partner in the community dedicated to exceptional customer service through the effective and efficient use of the resources entrusted to us.

I look forward to being part of such an exceptional team of fire service professionals and a member of the community.
