Passing of Local 1604 Member Deanna Carr

It is with great sorrow that IAFF Local 1604, Bellevue, Bellevue Fire Department and the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters announce the passing of Firefighter Deanna Carr.


Firefighter Carr died at approximately 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 15, 2014, at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle.  She was involved in a diving accident on Sunday, October 12, and did not regain consciousness after that event. The Bellevue Fire Department and Local 1604 are working closely with her family.


Firefighter Carr was a beloved member of the Bellevue Fire Department for 22 years. Her presence will be sorely missed and her absence very hard to come to terms with. She contributed greatly to an open, humorous and hard working environment, was not afraid to speak her mind and held everyone she worked with to high standards. She was an outstanding firefighter/EMT who loved her career and had the admiration and respect of her coworkers.


She was a great friend and co-worker and her loss is an unexpected blow being felt throughout the organization. Please keep her immediate family and those in her fire department family who were greatly impacted by her untimely passing in your thoughts and prayers.


Fill The Boot! Sixty Years and Going Strong!
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the partnership between the IAFF and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Since 1954, when a father of two boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy asked his fire fighter friend to help, the IAFF has raised over half a billion dollars to fund summer camps for kids with muscle diseases, and to work towards finding a cure for these muscle diseases.
