Marci Stone Leaves Roanoke Fire-EMS

Comments: 1

Captain Marci Stone has decided to leave the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department after 9 years. Marci was hired on April 21, 1997 and was the first woman to attain the rank of Captain in the department. Marci and other female firefighters in Roanoke recently had a newspaper article written about them. The article received State and National attention and was featured on The article can be viewed here. Marci just recently returned to work from maternity leave with her first child. Marci is married to Todd Stone, also a Captain with the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department.

Marci was the acting Battalion Chief of Training prior to going on maternity leave. When she returned she was assigned to the ARFF crew at Station #10 on A-Shift. Her last day is tomorrow.

We wish Marci the best in her new position as the Emergency Medical Coordinator with Lewis Gale Hospital.

The number of female firefighters in Roanoke City are now down to 7 as Marci makes the 5th woman to leave the department in the past 5 years.
