Tucker Walker comes to the Sunnyside Fire Department with five years of paramedic experience. Walker is the newest member of the Sunnyside Fire Department.

Originally from Lake Tap, in western Washington, Tucker Walker is loving living in eastern Washington, an area he has called home for the past 18 years.

A graduate of Central Washington University, he now lives in the Naches area. “But I’m currently seeking a residence in the Lower Yakima Valley,” he added. “I need to be closer to my job.”

Walker was recently hired as a fireman/paramedic with the Sunnyside Fire Department. “I’ve been on the job since Aug. 1,” he said.

He brings with him a Bachelor’s degree in science and para-medicine. He worked as a paramedic in Yakima with the Advance Life Systems ambulance service, before he decided to seek employment with the Sunnyside department.

“I’ve been learning a lot. These guys are awesome,” he said of his fellow firemen.

“I’m looking forward to living in Sunnyside,” he added.

Single, Walker loves hunting, fishing and camping, and finds Central Washington a great place to enjoy these activities

“I’m excited to be here.”
