President of Chile takes picture with members of ARFF 

It’s not every day members of your team get to pose for a pic with a world leader, but this is King County International Airport/Boeing Field, after all.

President Michelle Bachelet of Chile was gracious enough to take time out of her busy travel schedule to visit with local law enforcement, including members of our Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) facility.

The backstory: Earlier this month, Pres. Bachelet touched down at Boeing Field as part of her visit to Washington state, which included  meeting with local leaders King County Executive Dow Constantine and Governor Jay Inslee, among others, and a tour of Amazon’s facilities in Seattle. Before she departed the Evergreen State, the twice-elected Chilean president insisted she take a group picture with our folks.

Her office even posted the picture on the official Chilean presidential Flickr account.

In case you were wondering, the ARFF officers pictured are Chief Nathan Elledge, Deputy Kirk Wills, Deputy Bill Butterfield and Deputy Kirk Rains, along with members of the Seattle Police Department and Washington State Patrol.

Great work, everyone. And of course, gracias, La Presidenta!
