For the first time in its history, Skagit County Fire District 14 in Alger has women accounting for more than a third of its 32 firefighters and staff, a marked change in a field still dominated by men.

The women take pride in that the Alger department maintains the same standards across the sexes, something they say is a trait of the fire service overall.
