Beyond Lights and Sirens

Theme: Relentless Creativity

We do not fight as much fire as we used to fight. We want to keep our community safe, healthy, educated, engaged, and happy. If we see a need in any of those areas we attempt to fill it in the best way possible. We challenge children to push up contests at schools. Have all employees in a FITBIT contest. We eat lunch with special needs kids who were eating alone, do a fire obstacle course at MDA events, put 300 pinwheels in front of our station for each kid who is a victim to sex trafficking each month.

We understand our role as community risk reduction liaisons and the responsibility of being role models. We are more than firefighters in our community, we are teachers, friends, health coaches, and anything you need.
