Lewis County Fire District 6 Celebrates Volunteer Recruit Firefighter Training Graduation


Lewis County Fire District 6, which serves the rural Chehalis and Adna areas, held a ceremony at the November Fire Commissioner’s meeting on Nov. 22 to recognize its new volunteer fire recruits who completed their fire training. The recruits received their state fire certificates, fire helmet, and district challenge coin at the meeting. Firefighter Mike Goodwillie presented the certificates, Fire Chief Ken Cardinale issued their fire helmets, and the commissioners handed out the district challenge coins. 

Cardinale addressed the recruits and their families, “discussing the recent training process, the sacrifice, and the commitment of each recruit and their family members,” said District 6 in a news release on the event. 

One graduate, Kylie Bretzel, was unable to attend “but was recognized for her achievement,” said the district.
