Battalion Chief Douglas Knight
The Northshore Fire Department is honoring two of its firefighters for "30 years of outstanding service to the Department and community."

Douglas Knight, a graduate of Bothell High School, began his career with the Northshore Fire Department in 1972 as a volunteer and was hired full time in 1981. 

Knight was promoted to Lieutenant in 1984 and has served in various officer ranks until being promoted to Battalion Chief in 2001. 

For many years, Knight oversaw the fleet program that included maintaining the emergency apparatus and developing specifications for new equipment purchases.

Firefighter Tim Wooldridge
Tim Wooldridge grew up in Kenmore and graduated from Inglemoor High School. 

Wooldridge, whose father started his volunteer service with the department in 1958, chose to follow in his footsteps and pursue a career in the fire service. 

Wooldridge started as a volunteer with the department in 1979, and was hired full time in 1981.

"It is a privilege to recognize these two employees for their dedication and valuable contribution to the Department and the community."
