In harm’s way

This photograph is a tribute to the countless number of Americans who volunteer their services to fire departments and emergency response agencies around the country. This flag is painted into the grill of a firetruck in the fleet at Shell Puget Sound Refinery, where a community-wide response exercise was conducted Wednesday night. Shell, Tesoro, General Chemical, and Air Liquide make up the March Point Community Awareness Emergency Response (C.A.E.R.) organization. Each year dozens of emergency response personnel take part in an exercise that provides an opportunity to work together in response to a hypothetical disaster. Among participants are the Anacortes Fire Department and several local fire districts, as well as agencies such as the Skagit County Department of Emergency Management, the American Red Cross and Island Hospital.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
