Fire Chief Paul Stonemetz celebrated his retirement on Thursday, April 11, surrounded by family, colleagues, and community members. At the event, Chief Stonemetz was honored with the Statewide Volunteer Award from Serve Washington, the Governor’s Commission on National & Community Service. The Award was presented to Stonemetz by Michael Grayum, Zillah City Administrator and commissioner for Serve Washington. “We are honored to celebrate Paul, our chief, because he was selected as the volunteer for this entire central region,” Grayum said. “He’s a volunteer and a part time firefighter with a full time impact.” This year, a new approach was used in the selection process for the Statewide Volunteer Award selection, with a new nomination process being implemented.
