October 03, 2016
Seward firefighters Lt. Jilian Chapman, Chief Eddie Athey, and Lt. Austin Chapman were presented with awards at the Alaska Fire Conference on September 24, 2016 in Fairbanks. Each year a total of five awards are given at the statewide conference; this year Seward took home an unprecendented three of them.
Today Seward Fire Department retired Engine 3 after her many years of service to the community. We look forward to welcoming the newest member of the fleet, Truck 35, which will replace Engine 3 and should be here sometime the week of June 14. Thank you Engine 3 for your service and taking care of your crews. You will be missed as the last of the "Open Jumpseaters."
