Spokane Fire Department appoints new fire marshal

The Spokane Fire Department announced Wednesday the appointment of Megan Phillips as the new City of Spokane Fire Marshal.

The fire marshal position became vacant after Fire Marshal Michael Miller retired in June.

Phillips previously served as the assistant fire marshal.

As fire marshal, Phillips leads the prevention division, which includes code enforcement, plans review, and community risk reduction.

“Chief Phillips is incredibly resourceful and educated when it comes to understanding the fire code and all of its intricacies,” says Assistant Fire Chief Trisha Wolford. “As our new Fire Marshal, she will be a great asset to the Fire Department and the City. Her experience as Assistant Fire Marshal has prepared her for the hard work and dedication that is required to keep our city, residents and visitors safe.”

Phillips is a 20-year veteran with the Spokane Fire Department. Phillips has a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University, a Bachelor of Arts Degree from St. Mary’s College of Notre Dame, and a Fire Science Degree from the Community Colleges of Spokane. Phillips resides in Spokane with her husband Chris. Their two sons are both proudly serving in the United States Air Force.
