The Northshore Fire Department promoted firefighters Jeremiah Ingersoll and Matt Hochstein to the rank of lieutenant at a badge pinning ceremony at fire department headquarters on Feb. 4.

Ingersoll joined the Northshore Fire Department in 2002.  He has been an active member of the technical rescue team for several years and has had many opportunities to demonstrate his leadership abilities as an acting lieutenant. Ingersoll has been assigned as an instructor to the East Metro Training Group Fire Academy 14-1. Upon completion of the academy in April, Ingersoll will be assigned to Engine 51 in Kenmore.

Hochstein joined the Northshore Fire Department in 1996.  In addition to his role as firefighter, he has been an integral part of the department’s public education efforts, providing training to scores of community members in community emergency response team, first aid and CPR. Hochstein holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon and an associate’s degree in fire science from Edmonds Community College. Hochstein has been assigned to “A” shift and will serve on Engine 51 in Kenmore.
