As we enter the final quarter of 2019, I would like to say it has been a great year for our community and department. I am pleased to announce we have added another ambulance into service to provide top quality care for the members in and around our community. I would also like to announce the retirement of Deputy Chief Tom Smith. Chief Smith has served our community for 20+ years as a volunteer firefighter. His passion, sacrifice, and dedication to this department is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.
As the year comes to a close, we will focus on making the holidays fun and safe and of course, awaiting the arrival of old man winter.
Children are back in school and we would like to remind everyone to be extra vigilant around intersections where children cross.
Halloween can be a time for innocent and mischievous fun. Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will be running some tips to keep children safe while trick or treating.
Thanksgiving usually means travel for a large majority of people and we want to remind you that when traveling to always be prepared for adverse weather conditions. November can bring storms that can leave you stranded. Packing blankets, food, cat litter, water and a heat source are a few great ideas. We will be running features on our Facebook page about winterizing your vehicle for safe travels.
We are excited to remind you that Santa will be visiting Station 1 at 400 Security Blvd in December! Make sure you bring your children young and old to see him. The holiday season is such a joyous time and we hope you are blessed to spend it with your families and friends relaxing. With the large military presence in our community we keep our thoughts with the armed forces and first responders who will not be home on the holidays, but working to keep our nation and communities safe.
With the cooler weather we urge our citizens to remain vigilant to fire danger. Our conditions are dry right now and wildland fires can happen at anytime.
I want to wish everyone a safe and wonderful end of the year and look forward to our continued service in the New Year. New things are coming in 2020 so be on the lookout for announcements.
