EMT named responder of the year

Seth Czehatowski
By Lenard Hansen, Warrenton Fire Department, Thursday, April 11, 2019

At our recent banquet, Seth Czehatowski was awarded “Emergency Medical Responder of the Year.”

Seth is originally from Redding, Calif. He was a seasonal firefighter for wildland before graduating from high school.

Czehatowski has an associate’s degree in Natural Resources from Shasta Community College. He got his Emergency Medical Technician training at Shasta Community College in 2012.

In 2013, he took an opening on the fire crew for the Oregon Department of Forestry in Astoria. During that first fire season, he fell in love with the area.

His first volunteer firefighting role was with the Olney/Walluski Fire Department.

He moved to Warrenton in 2017 and joined the Warrenton Fire Department.

Living only a few blocks from the station, Seth is often the first to arrive and last to leave. He is the first in his family to be involved in the fire service and we’re glad he joined the Warrenton team.
