Future Women in EMS & Fire Workshop a great success!

16 participants and 16 instructors participated from Bellingham Fire, North Whatcom Fire and Rescue, South Whatcom Fire Authority, Fire District 1, and Fire District 7.
Here’s a quote from one participant:
“This workshop was AMAZING! Every instructor was super friendly, supportive, and open about their personal experience in the fire service. The fire break outs and demos were especially helpful. I feel even more excited and motivated to apply to the fire service because of this workshop.”
Emily Thompson, L106 Member & Bellingham Firefighter wrote us:
“We ask participants to complete a feedback survey and received fantastic feedback ensuring that this event goes a long way towards encouraging women to join the fire service. Last year, South Whatcom Fire Authority hired two people who attended this event and Bellingham hired one. This event really is moving the needle towards diversifying the fire service. Thanks to the union for continuing to support this event!”

LOCAL 106 SUPPORTS BOEING FIREFIGHTERS

Local 106 demonstrated strong solidarity by standing alongside our Brothers and Sisters from Boeing Local I-66. Members from various Local 106 units traveled down for this crucial event.
A big shoutout to everyone who showed up to support this important informational picket, backing our Boeing Firefighters.
