With much sorrow, we regret to share the unexpected passing of a dedicated member of our fire service family on July 26. Eliza Hoover joined Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One in 2009. She was our first career female firefighter, first female paramedic, EMS Provider of the Year, Advanced Cardiac Life Support instructor, and EMT course coordinator. However, Eliza was much more than a Firefighter/Paramedic. She loved snowboarding with her son, hiking, and spending time with her German Shepherds. She deeply loved her family, treated others with kindness, and was our friend. We will miss her greatly. All donations go directly to honor Eliza's memory and support her family.
