On Saturday LWFR came to Lake Wenatchee State Park to teach the importance of safety in the forest and being around camp fires. Some of the topics that were covered were safety in the forest, safety around camp fires, wildland firefighting equipment, structural firefighting equipment, and a tour of our fire engine. 

 

SUPERHERO DAY!

 

LWFR was invited to the Lake Wenatchee YMCA camp for the conclusion of superhero week. Camp Director Tim McElravy wanted the kids to meet some real superheroes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LWFR crews extinguished a small brush fire started by a downed power line in Chiwawa Pines tonight.

 

Congrats to Bill Moffat for being promoted to Assistant Chief and Mike Stanford for being promoted to Captain. Captain Stanford and Assistant Chief Moffat will start their new positions on July 1st.

 

 
Michael Stanford was selected as the Volunteer EMT of the Year by the 
Greater Wenatchee EMS Council at yesterday's award ceremony for EMS 
Week.
 
Michael has been instrumental in encouraging our District to move from a 
first aid providing organization to an agency that now houses a BLS 
ambulance and provides BLS care. Michael's leadership has now created a 
culture of advance training and care in a rural setting that is 
imperative to saving lives! LWFR now has 22 certified EMS responders and 
Michael has played a key role in all of their development. Michael has 
led the charge in civilian CPR classes and introduced and championed the 
placement of numerous AED(s) in our community. He routinely provide 
First Aid Classes to the public. In his spare time (if there is such a 
thing) he holds leadership positions on the local and regional EMS 
Councils and never misses the opportunity to assist his community.

Congratulations to Firefighter Nikkole Jones for receiving the Keisha Engley Award from the Chelan Douglas Youth United Way. Nikkole joined LWFR in 2015 as a Cadet and was the first youth Cadet to become a firefighter for LWFR. Chief Lamar, Lieutenants Kocher and Stanford and FF McElravey were all in attendance to honor Nikkole for her efforts. 

The KEIA is presented to a senior (who has completed the United Way – Youth United Program) for contributions to their community that surpass those of their peers and invokes inspiration and action in others; someone who aspires to make a difference and "proves it" based on their work and motivations; someone who makes a plan to effect change and make an impact and puts the plan into motion.
