June 17th through June 23rd is Firefighter Safety Stand Down Week. We would like to thank all our brave Firefighters as well as our fellow Brother & Sister Firefighters for all that you do. We know everyone who volunteers puts in long hours and sleepless nights taking care of the needs of our community and with the mutual goal of meeting our Department’s mission. We know that you’re dedicated, we know that you care, and we also know that you don’t get the amount of thanks that you deserve most of the time.
This Years theme is BE AWARE- GET CHECKED ! Firefighters face many risks such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, PTSD, and more, and early detection through annual medical evaluations and physicals saves lives.
Once again thank you for all you do, stay safe and see you on the fireground. EVERYONE GOES HOME SAFE !!!
