Congratulations Mark!! Enjoy retirement!!RETIREMENT: Firefighter Paramedic Mark S. Anderson has worked his final shift for the Bellevue Fire Department. Mark completed just over 31 years of distinguished service, and his accomplishments are many. Hired in 1990, Mark spent his first years at Station 1, as a firefighter on Engine 1 and in a newly created tiller position on Ladder 1. In 1993, Mark attended the renowned University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center Paramedic Training Program and served as a firefighter paramedic on A Platoon for the duration of his career. Mark’s true passion for the profession and serving the community showed with his involvement in programs both locally and nationally. He helped implement advanced trauma and bleeding control training for members of the department as well as ensuring we carried the proper equipment to treat these life-threatening conditions. He researched and proposed purchasing a new type of body armor suited to our personnel, taught community CPR classes, served as an instructor to our firefighters for their quarterly Emergency Medical Technician training and provided skills training to his fellow paramedics. Mark was an original member of both our distinguished Honor Guard as well as the Urban Search and Rescue Team, Washington State Task Force 1. When Hurricane Katrina devastated communities in the Eastern United States, Mark deployed with the Task Force to Gulfport, Mississippi to assist. Mark's expertise led him to numerous speaking engagements, both nationally and internationally, on subjects of homeland security and active shooter preparedness as well as operational rescue and high threat pre-hospital medicine. We will miss his talents and wish Mark the best in this new chapter! ... See MoreSee Less
