Michael Stanford was selected as the Volunteer EMT of the Year by the 
Greater Wenatchee EMS Council at yesterday's award ceremony for EMS 
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.


Family Safety Day 

Saturday May 27th 2017


Plain Fire Station 













LEAVENWORTH -- Work begins May 1 on the installation of more than 300 new roadway safety signs along Chumstick Highway.


The safety improvement project includes the installation of a variety of traffic signs, from speed limit and curve warning signs to school bus stop and fire station caution signs. The project will upgrade existing signs as well as install new ones.


The signs will be installed by contractor KRCI LLC along the highway from Leavenworth (at milepost 0.11) to the top of Beaver Hill (at milepost 12.37). The project is expected to take 28 working days, with crews working 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday beginning Monday, May 1. Work is expected to begin near Leavenworth and continue toward Beaver Hill.


Motorists should expect one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic in the area where crews will be working each day. Motorists may experience minor delays of up to 15 minutes. In some areas of Chumstick Highway, a pilot car also may be used in conjunction with flaggers. Motorists are asked to please plan for the delays.


The purpose of the project is to improve traveler safety on Chumstick Highway.  Collision data from 2008 to 2015 shows road conditions such as curves, excess speed, wet and icy surfaces, and low ambient lighting contribute to a large portion of collisions on the highway, in particular collisions involving vehicles running off the road. The installation of the signs is the second phase of the project. Last summer, centerlines and wider edge lines were painted on the highway.
