DCFD #2 Special Recognition goes out to:
Submitted by Assistance Chief Phillips

Fire Chief Wayne Barnhart led DCFD2 through the change to begin running EMS. This was an intimidating change for many of the staff who were hired to fight fire. This has proven to be a great move to provide this service as we support Ballard and Lifeline with patient care. Chief Wayne Barnhart was hired as a firefighter in 1974 after serving in Vietnam. Chief Barnhart retired in 2004 and still frequents the fire station for coffee table discussions with the retiree’s on a nearly daily basis.

Dr. Lance Jobe for leading the way with the initial use of High Performance CPR under his guidance and supervision. This practice is still not used across the country, yet it has proven to be extremely effective.

Shawn Ballard for his continued leadership in EMS. Shawn seems to always be on the cutting edge of EMS practices and drives necessary change to continually improve service for the Wenatchee Valley area. Shawn can always be counted on during any event for calm demeanor and a wealth of knowledge.
