Amber Johnsson

Engineer/Firefighter Johnsson has been with the Glendale Fire Department for 15 years. She promoted to the rank of engineer in 2016.

Johnsson uses her position with the Glendale Fire Department as a platform to do good things in the community she serves. She has organized three smoke detector walks in Glendale to increase awareness of the importance of smoke detectors. After working a fire where a family perished because their smoke detectors were not working, she teamed up with the Sejata Smoke Alarm Foundation, and organized a golf tournament that raised more than $4,000.

Engineer/Firefighter Johnsson is active in other community charites as well:

Participating in Horses With Hearts Rodeo benefitting children with autism and cerebral palsy

Helping to raise $1,000 for the Fourth Man Servants, a non-profit that assists veterans with medical bills, home maintenance and assistance

Working with Bottles for Babies, which benefits low income, single mothers with in getting clothing, formula, diapers, and assistance as well as education

Volunteering at Harvest Compassion Center

In 2005, Johnsson received the Firemark award for rescuing a dog from a fire. This allowed the Glendale Fire Department to receive the first FIDO bag donation from the Fetch Foundation. A tool still used by Glendale Firefighters when animals are involved in a housefire.

Engineer/Firefighter Johnsson goes above and beyond the call of duty, spending countless hours donating her time and positively impacting people around her.
