Chelan Fire and Rescue welcomes Firefighter and EMT Austin Murdock to their team. Austin will be filling a vacated SAFER Grant Firefighter position from earlier this year.
Austin grew up in Leavenworth and graduated from high school there in 2015. He started his fire service journey with Chelan County Fire District #3 as a volunteer, and worked the summer of 2015 in the Wenatchee River Ranger District. In fall 2015, he began attending Everett Community College where he obtained his AA in Fire Science.
Austin is a certified EMT and completed his Firefighter I & II and HazMat Awareness and Operations at the State Fire Academy. Before joining the Chelan Fire and Rescue team, Austin worked as a part-time Firefighter/EMT with Mukilteo and Lake Stevens Fire Departments.
Austin lives in Chelan with his significant other. When time allows, he enjoys being an outdoor enthusiast.
“Welcome to Chelan Fire and Rescue, Austin.”
