New Firefighters Join the Snoqualmie Fire Department

Five new firefighters have joined the Snoqualmie Fire Department – one career firefighter and four volunteers.

Firefighter Peter van Lunsen was hired to fill a vacancy due to Lt. Kelly Gall’s retirement in June of last year.

New volunteer firefighters include John Solms, Mark Mulligan, John Paul Likes, and Don Fogarty. All are EMS volunteers except Volunteer Firefighter Fogarty, who is a FF/EMS volunteer. These new volunteers bring the Fire Department up to its targeted number of 20 volunteers following resignations over the last year and a half.

“The department is excited to have these individuals join our ranks,” said Interim Fire Chief Michael Bailey. “They all bring varied experiences and skills to the department that will be an asset to the citizens of Snoqualmie.”
