Bonnie Cobb and Gov Jay Inslee - Four Mound Community, Nine Mile Falls, WA

Recently, WA Governor Jay Inslee named Bonnie Cobb, from the Four Mound Community in Nine Mile Falls, Washingtonian of the Day for her work in helping the community become a nationally recognized Firewise site and for her commitment to help others reduce wildfire risks.


Cobb is a dedicated and motivated advocate who lost all her outbuildings and a haystack in the Firestorm 1991 wildfire.  She says she learned from that experience and now helps other homeowners avoid what happened to her.


Bonnie has been the Fire Chief of Spokane Fire District 5, and is currently on the department’s Board of Commissioners and is also their Firewise Coordinator.


On behalf of NFPA and the Firewise USA program, we send kudos to Bonnie for all her efforts to reduce wildfire risks!
