Spring 2019 Newsletter

Winter will soon be behind us (we hope) and with the arrival of spring we have a lot to share with you in the Spring 2019 edition of the Fire 8 Flyer.

A sincere Thank You  for your continued support and approval of our recent Maintenance and Operations Replacement Levy.  Our goal to continue to serve you with the level of rapid response, equipment, and highly trained firefighters and paramedics that you have come to expect.

This spring you will have an opportunity to participate in a number of workshops, classes, and community events.  In this Fire 8 Flyer you will find dates for our Stop the Bleed class, Community Wildfire Preparedness Workshops, our annual Valleyford Debris Collection Day, and Station 81’s annual Open House.

If you live in one of our rural areas and have not already requested a Home Address Sign – it’s not too late.


Maintenance and Operations Replacement Levy

Thank You Fire District 8 community for your overwhelming support in the passage of our Maintenance and Operations Replacement Levy.

With the passage of the replacement levy we are able to maintain a Firefighter/Paramedic at each station, respond effectively when multiple calls are received at the same time, as well as maintain volunteer programs and firefighter safety requirements.

We appreciate your trust in Fire District 8 and we look forward to continuing to serve you with the level of rapid response, equipment, training, compassion and integrity you expect and deserve. We will always be here for you!
