Sequim natives. Wives. Mothers. And now Firefighters of the Year.
Fellow career and volunteer firefighters with Clallam County District 3 selected Stefanie Anderson, a career firefighter/paramedic, and Anaka Hughes, a volunteer firefighter/EMT, as 2017’s Firefighters of the Year.
Anderson was named Career Firefighter of the Year and Hughes Volunteer Firefighter of the Year on Jan. 19, at the fire district’s awards banquet at the Cedars at Dungeness.
“The thought never crossed my mind that I was ever going to get it,” Anderson said.
“I have a great job and I love doing what I do. I think there’s a lot of us here who do an amazing job. It’s an honor.”
