New Fire Chief Visits Mukilteo kiwanis

Mukilteo Kiwanis welcomed new fire chief Glen Albright to our meeting this morning. When Chief Albright joined our fire department in February, 2021, he was named Fire Marshall. The close-knit community “feel” and smaller town atmosphere drew him and his family back to the #PNW after several years in different locations.

In October, 2022 Glen was promoted to Fire Chief and it is a position he is tackling with energy and enthusiasm. Although not large, the Mukilteo Fire Department had over 2,900 calls (over 2,300 in Mukilteo) in 2022. Fire Station 24 (The Beach House) is located in Old Town and Fire Station 25 (The Beehive) is located in Harbour Pointe. 

There is a friendly rivalry between the two. #25 claim they get a bulk of the calls, and #24 boast about their relaxed closeness to the beach. But both houses respond and support the other. When the need arises, both stations respond to the same incident, depending on the severity of the call, the location, which station can provide the appropriate equipment, and who is available at the time of the crisis.

Questions from the floor were varied and good debate ensued. One particular comment around emergency preparedness. This prompted Chief Albright to talk about increasing the availability of community training and to become a visible resource for residents who seek information. For more information, visit:

Also joining our meeting were two Mariner High School Key Club officers. They invited everyone to get the word out about their car wash, THIS SATURDAY, at Les Schwab on the speedway. (Interestingly, Chief Albright was a former Key Clubber)! Funds raised at the car wash will go toward future club activities such as attendance at DCON (youth conference) as well as other important club business.
