Little Fork Volunteers To The Rescue

October 1, 2017 - We were dispatched to a CO alarm in the Quail Ridge subdivision. The units marked on scene and as they were walking towards the home they were somewhat surprised to see a T-Rex driving by on a small 4 wheeler. Once it was determined that the alarm was from a faulty detector the crew prepared to return and tried to convince the Chief that a T-Rex had crossed paths with them. After a short search the T-Rex was found and agreed to have photos taken with some of the fire fighters. During this incident a couple of things were discovered; first a T-Rex will not fit into the cab of a pumper but....a T-Rex will fit into the rear of our heavy rescue. Just goes to prove that you never know what you will encounter on an incident. The ambulance crew that was on another incident were disappointed in missing the T-Rex incident.......

I have to say, you guys are the best! It's not every day someone comes across a t-rex driving a small 4-wheeler. I think I saw Snow White in one of your photos as well.

I love our neighborhood so much!!! Thanks for sharing these photos. You're the best!

Seems like there have more accidents here since changing the sweeping right turn lane with a yield on 229 to a 90 degree right turn lane...

Something is wrong with the grade or it's not adequately marked...or something.

September 16, 2017 - Our volunteers assisted a local family by standing by while a brush pile was burned. We would like to thank you for your donation towards our new fire and EMS station.  Attack 9, Engine 9, Ambulance 9-2 and Chief 9 were staffed and attended the burn.
August 28, 2017 - We performed a walk-through of a barn that is located in our primary fire response area. The owners invited us to the property to review the fire protection systems. We scheduled the event on our company drill nights. The barn is fully covered with sprinklers, detectors and security cameras. The system is supplied by a 10,000 gallon underground cistern. We reviewed the sprinkler room which houses the fire pump, OS&Y valve and risers. We also noted that there is an outdoor fire department connection. The piping that is located in non-heated areas is filled with an anti-freeze solution. All areas have smoke and heat detectors. Another safety factor are the commercial fans in the stalls and wiring that is up to the latest codes. Each stall has an exterior door. This allows for quick evacuation from the building when needed. We would like to thank the owners for the access and the 21 volunteer fire and EMS personnel who attended the event!!!

Impressive.

With the $$ invested in suppression & protection, have they also considered building a separate building for storage of hay?

Wow... thank you for sharing! Would be good to share on the TLAER group page...

Thanks for your service and dedication ! We enjoyed your "company"! Pardon the pun!

Is that barn off 651

Nice, I used to be a volunteer firefighter and a horse person, they did a good job. If I were to build a barn it would have a suppression system.

Well done

September 13, 2017 - Company drill night!! We went to the South Wales subdivision and practiced hydrant operations. The driver/operators practiced hooking up to a hydrant and pumping the apparatus. We charged a small hand line to provide minimal fire flow and pressures for the class.
August 27, 2017 - After returning to the station from an all night fire, our crews were greeted by Girl Scout Troop 3126. These young ladies had visited our station while they were doing their cookie sales (a few months ago). After seeing the conditions that our volunteers face on a daily basis they decided to donate their cookie proceeds towards our building fund!! This group of Girl Scouts proudly presented a $700 check to Little Forks volunteer fire and EMS providers. This money has been deposited in our building fund. We are very impressed and thankful for their hard work and thoughtfulness for both our volunteers and the entire community. The new fire and EMS station is an important component of service to the community. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
