Captain Bryan Gibb has worked his last shift of an over 34 year career. 

Bryan started his career as a part-time firefighter with Shoreline Fire Department in 1982 and was hired full-time in March 1985. 

In September 1998, Bryan was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and spent 10 years in that role. For the past 11 years, he has served as a Captain riding the ladder truck at Station 65.

Bryan has been an active participant of Shoreline’s Technical Rescue Team and has taught hundreds of firefighters rescue techniques across the region.

Additionally, Bryan is one of the founding members of WA Task Force 1, which is a FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Team. He has been deployed numerous times, including to the Oklahoma City bombing, September 11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks, and most recently the Oso mudslide.

Bryan also served as a member of our Wildland Team over the past two years and was deployed to the Jolly Mountain fire in 2017.

Bryan was one of our longest serving tenured employees, and his passion and commitment to technical rescue and ladder truck work is second to none. Bryan’s presence will be missed by us all.
