To our Community, our Friends, and our fellow First Responders. Please see the attached bulletins
The worst heat wave of the season so far is setting upon us through next Tuesday 23 July 2019. Everyday with temperatures in the 90's and several with heat index's as high as 110° or above.
This weather can be deadly especially to the most vulnerable among us (elderly, children, those with preexisting respiratory/heart conditions, etc, and lets not forget our pets) so please watch out for each other. Look in on your elderly neighbors, and keep children cool and hydrated, keep water bowls filled and animals inside or in a cool environment.
If you are working outside in the elements, please use caution and take breaks (preferably in shade or Air Conditioning) and HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE.
If you feel the effects of or notice someone suffering the effects of heat exhaustion/stroke, seek medical assistance immediately. Call 911.
To our fellow first responders, please watch each other, rotate crews frequently on the fire ground, and make sure you utilize rehab stations. HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE. Strip off turnout gear in rehab, and get assessed by EMS.
The attitude of "I'm ok, not going to evaluation" is unacceptable. Think of yourself, your family, and your company and make the smart and proper choices.
Friends, be well and take care of each other. ... See MoreSee Less

As we prepare for the summer, we all know we will have to deal with the heat, humidity, and medical stresses they pose.
We have reached out to several of our community partners for assistance in stocking up on rehab supplies for the coming months.
Today, Walmart of Eddystone Store # 2830 has been the first to step up and donated a pallet of water to the Company.
This will allow us to stock all of our apparatus with 2-3 cases each and maintain a reserve stored in the station to replenish stock as needed.
We extend our thanks and gratitude to Walmart for stepping up and helping our company, your First Responders, and our community members.
Walmart has always met the call when we have asked for thier assistance and we strive to maintain that strong partnership into the future.

On this day 75 years ago the Tuesday morning of 06 June 1944, our nation along with our Allies under the command of Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower (US Army) launched Operation Overlord to free the European Continent from the occupation of the Nazi Reich.
As the men of our Great Republic stormed from the landing crafts, jumped from the aircraft, and climb the cliffs of Normandy they spilled their blood, and gave their lives to liberate a continent, and protect our way of life at home.
These men gave the full measure of themselves for their nation, their communities, their families, and the men on their left and right.
By Gods Blessings, their great will, desire, and perseverance they overcame the obstacles, they pushed forward, and in the sands and fields stained with the blood of those great patriots who had fallen or were injured, they won the day and pushed on forward.
We shall never forget. We give honor and thanks for the sacrifice of those men who 75 years ago gave their all for our Great Republic, and for the liberation of an occupied people.
From the sands of Omaha & Utah beaches, the fields of Cherbourg, the cliffs of La Pointe du Hoc, all covered in the blood of our bravest, our heros of yesterday valiantly fought for our tomorrows.
We give our thanks and honor you for your service and sacrifice. Thank you to the men and woman of Our Greatest Generation. ... See MoreSee Less
