Longtime Nikiski Fire Board Member Passes

Mae Leighton had been a part of the Nikiski Fire Department since her first board meeting in the late 80’s.


Chief James Baisden was quoted as saying “Mae has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Nikiski community for more than 25 years, she helped oversee our Fire Department and her caring spirit and knowledge will be greatly missed by all”.


Last night, Nikiski Fire Department held its monthly board meeting and Mae was on her way home when she had an apparent heart attack, Nikiski Fire Department medics and staff at CPH Emergency Department gave their best efforts in resuscitating Mae, but she passed on just after Midnight.



Details for the memorial service will be made available once arrangements have been made.
