The task of being a firefighter has its difficulties that cannot be put into words. One of the hardest parts is loosing someone you work beside. It’s with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Captain, Eric Boutwell. Our hearts go out to his department, crew, and family.With profound sadness we report the death of Captain Eric Boutwell on September 11, 2019, in Walla Walla, WA. Brother Boutwell, a member of Local 1461 Burien, and King County FD #2, was a valued friend and colleague who joined the North Highline Fire District as a volunteer in 1992 and became a career firefighter in 1999. He's survived by his wife, Krista, daughters Haley and Isabella, and many family and friends. To make a donation www.honoringericboutwell.com/. ... See MoreSee Less

September 11,2001 at 8:46 AM, American Airlines flight 11 hit World Trade Center North Tower. By the end of the day thousands had died. Over the next few months we learned of the heroes that emerged from this tragedy and how all of our lives were changed.
Today, let us take a moment to remember that day and the fallen, reflecting back to the images we witnessed on TV and the places and people we were around when we learned of what was happening. We honor those who rushed in to save souls in peril and those who responded by going to their recruiting station and volunteering to fight. We hug our loved ones hoping that this will never happen again, but knowing, that if it does we will prevail together.
