MARYSVILLE — Trevor Trueax is the Marysville Fire District's most recent graduate of the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center Paramedic Training Program, Class 34.

Trueax spent roughly 10 months in the program, which consists of 350 hours of classroom lectures, 450 hours of laboratory work, 600 hours of clinical experience and 750 hours of field work experience, as well as riding with the Seattle Fire Department's Medic One Program.

Trueax is the thirteenth Marysville Fire District paramedic trained by the program since 1995.

Trueax has been with the Marysville Fire District for five years and has always wanted to be a paramedic.

"I enjoy helping people and I love fighting fire, so now I get the best of both worlds by being a firefighter/paramedic," Trueax said.
