Woden Fire Department
Source: Adapted from recommendations of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fire Administration, the National Fire Protection Agency and CDC.
I would like to take this opportunity to list a few of the many things that the members of the Woden Fire Department do on a regular basis. Everyone knows that they respond on calls but they do a whole lot more to help make the department one of the best.
1.) Meetings - Every Monday night, 1 Saturday per month (Jr. every other Saturday).
2.) Station, truck and equipment maintenance.
3.) Monthly fire drills at Woden School.
4.) Standby at athletic events.
5.) Fundraisers - involves weeks of planning.
6.) Continuing Education hours.
7.) Records and Reports.
This is just a small sample of what the members of the Woden Fire Department do on top of responding to fires, wrecks, sick calls, gas leaks, animals in distress, smoke in the area, down power lines, search and rescue and anything else that may require our assistance. Then you add that they do all this for no pay (in fact they use their own money) in order to help the citizens of the Woden Fire District and you realize how great these men and women are.
They are truly remarkable people and I am proud, honored and privileged to be their Fire Chief!
