Colleen M. Adler
Fire Commissioner #3
Commissioner Colleen M. Adler retired from West Pierce Fire & Rescue after 22 years of service. Her experience there as a dispatcher and development of the Community Emergency Response Team for Lakewood and University Place gave her a solid understanding of the value of volunteers in emergency service.
Anderson Island has been the Commissioner’s home for the past 16 years and she has admired how the fire district has engaged with the community to create a strong, well-trained, responsive group of volunteers. As commissioner, she has represented the interests of the residents of Anderson Island by offering support for the continued growth and training of our first responders through conscientious budgeting, expanded grant opportunities and consistently demonstrating respect for our paid fire staff as well as our volunteers.
