Joseph C. Coleman got a call from God on November 8, 2018, wanting to know if he would be interested in joining the brotherhood of firefighters in heaven to keep the campfires going and safe. Joe joined the Mountlake Terrace police department in July, 1964 and worked as a volunteer fire fighter until a lateral transfer to the fire department in 1967, where he was Mountlake Terrace's first paid firefighter. Joe retired from the fire department in 1980 after an injury prevented him from returning to work. He also served as the Snohomish County Fire Marshal until his retirement in the late '80s.
