Fire Chief Steve Wrightson was presented with the 2016 Service Person of the Year Award by the Battle Ground Chamber of Commerce on Thursday February 9th. Wrightson has been Fire Chief at Fire District 3 since 1989. Wrightson started his fire service career in 1975. His previous positions included Wild land Firefighter, Structural Firefighter, Fire Engineer, Fire Captain, Deputy Fire Marshal, and Battalion Chief.

Chief Wrightson said, “It’s a great honor and I appreciate it very much. It’s also humbling because everyday I get to work with some really great people in the fire service and law enforcement. There are so many people who could certainly be standing here tonight; many people that work very hard to make this community what it is.”
