My Story

On September 20th at 9:30 am, Journeyman Lineman Kevin Zoerb was working on the south end of Lopez Island when he came in contact with a high voltage line while working on the ground.

Kevin suffered cardiac arrest and severe burns and was airlifted to the ICU Burn Unit at Harborview Hospital.

Please read the journal entries for updates and leave a message in the guest book.

There is a Zoerb Family Fund at Islanders Bank to with expenses. Donations can be made at any Islanders Bank branch.

Kevin's wife Caroline and many family members are with him in Seattle, surrounding him with love and care.
