information from the Seattle Fire Department
The Seattle Fire Department will put a brand new Medic Unit into service thanks to the generous donation of a West Seattle couple.
In 2012, the estate of William C. Sanders and Mildred Krahmer Sanders donated more than $550,000 to the City of Seattle to purchase two new medic units for the Seattle Fire Department.
“My aunt and uncle cared passionately for the work of the City of Seattle Fire Department and their medic program and the thousands of people that the program serves each year,” said family member Donald L. Krahmer, Jr. of Portland, Oregon who served as trustee of the estate. “The gift represents, in a small way, a payback of the huge blessing that the City of Seattle and its citizens gave both of them during their time in the Pacific Northwest.”More ›
