It has been over eight months since our website has been updated. This is an unfortunate result of a major fact present in our fire department as well as many others. The active membership is limited in size thus we all have many responsibilities on our plates. Just like everyone else when we have more things to do than time to do them, we prioritize. While this website is meant to keep the public updated and informed we have chosen to sacrifice the relevancy of it to satisfy our other commitments and tasks. Going forward we will try to improve upon that mentality. One thing that may aid in this goal is for more members of the community to come forward and assist us in our mission. This can be accomplished in many ways that do not include answering alarms for help. Business and other behind the scenes tasks are needed to be done for the complete operation of the fire department.
Here is a brief overview of things that have occurred since our last update and some things scheduled to happen in the future.
The year 2013 has started out a bit quieter than the previous year but it has not been without some action. We have been to several working fires already this year including one that the PSP Fire Marshall determined to be arson. That fire was in our first due at 3885 Columbia Ave, the old Fillings Cleaners building on March 29, 2013. We also had a fire at the Moveable Feast restaurant on February 17, 2013. There have also been several fires we assisted surrounding departments on since the beginning of the year.
