The Spokane Fire Department's Division Chief Lisa Jones is the recipient of the Washington State Fire Marshal Association's Fire Marshal of the Year award.
Chief Jones was chosen to receive this award by her peers in the State of Washington for her inspiring dedication to fire prevention and community risk reduction. She has introduced many forward-thinking and successful programs in our community, some of which have been adopted as models for other jurisdictions. Fire Chief Bobby Williams has acknowledged this fact by noting “Chief Jones has a keen ability to find reasonable solutions to almost any challenge.”
Chief Jones began her career with the Spokane Fire Department as a part of the Operations Division and then moved into the area of Fire Prevention. Thanks to years of hard work and dedication, she ultimately became Fire Marshal and the first female Chief Officer in the Spokane Fire Department.
Last week, Chief Jones joined the American Red Cross, Gonzaga University, and Spokane Fire Department volunteers in delivering and installing smoke detectors to families in need as part of Fire Prevention Week. Actions like this are representative of what her colleagues call a “passionate and hands-on approach to her profession.”
“Chief Jones embodies dedication and passion in all aspects of the job” said Fire Chief Bobby Williams. “We are proud to have her as the Spokane Fire Department's Fire Marshal.”
