Marysville Fire District’s first career woman firefighter will retire after 24 years. Krista Longspaugh began her career part-time in 1996. She served as a drive/operator and was also a member of the IAFF Local 3219. “I’m honored to serve this community,” she said. “We really are a family here, and the friendships I’ve made are something I’ll always cherish.” Firefighters held a breakfast in honor of Longspaugh’s service Thursday. She’ll be honored with a traditional flag ceremony at the end of her final shift.
