The Shoreline Emergency Management world, to include the City staff, Shoreline Fire Department, Shoreline Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Shoreline Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) Team and I am sure many others in the city mourn the passing of long time community volunteer Robert “Bob” Phelps on January 5, 2013.

Bob was the team leader of the Shoreline ACS for many years and only recently resigned due to health reasons. He committed countless hours to grow the communications capabilities during emergencies in Shoreline and his leadership, team commitment, and sense of humor will be missed.  

The Shoreline CERT donated $100 in his name to the Shoreline Historical Museum as it was another community commitment that was dear to Bob’s heart. He will me missed by many. 

Shoreline is safer place to live because of Bob.

Thank you Gail and the City of Shoreline for this tribute to Bob Phelps. Very well said and Bob left many other very large footprints in our community and the larger one.

I will miss his cheerful and helpful spirit very much.

I didn't know Bob Phelps personally, but I did pass him while hiking in Boeing Creek Park regularly. He was always working on the stream
when a storm would make passing difficult. I will miss him, with his walking stick, always making my day a bit brighter.
