Volunteer – You Can Make A Difference

Duvall-King County Fire District 45 is looking for qualified candidates for the 2014 EMT class.

Volunteer responders work shifts and respond to emergencies alongside the full-time firefighters, providing life-saving services to the community.  In addition, volunteer responders gain valuable skills and experience, gain confidence in their own abilities, and make many friends in our fire department family.

There will be an information night on Tuesday, April 8th, at 7pm at the Duvall Fire headquarters (15600 First Ave NE) to provide information and answer questions.  RSVPs are encouraged.  Call 425-788-1625.

Upcoming Bicycle Ride

Greetings all,
I wanted to provide you with as much notice possible on the 2014 Flying Wheels bicycle rally. I have attached documents that outline the specifics (date, route, etc.) for your convenience. The fire district was included in the announcement as a courtesy but had no voice in the approval or scheduling of the event.

This information is not intended to endorse or vilify the event; rather to provide you information and help achieve the best possible outcome for all involved. Obviously, emergency responses could be challenged with the increased number of bicyclists. The number of participants could also increase aid emergencies during the event. To help minimize their impacts, the sponsoring club has hired additional King County police officers to help mitigate any issues.

My hope is that this advance notice will allow you to prepare/avoid congestion and traffic delays. It is important to note that the rally is the same weekend as Duvall Days and will be simultaneous with the parade on Saturday, May 31st. Main Street will be closed for the parade and traffic will be diverted to Snoqualmie Valley Road; the same route as the rally.

Regards,
David Burke
Fire Chief

Stand With Those Who Serve Week

WASHINGTON STATE – In recognition of the thousands of public safety personnel that have been called to serve their city, state and country each and every day, Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed the week of August 25 – September 1, 2013 to be “Stand With Those Who Serve Week” in the state of Washington.

Washington’s public safety personnel from city, county, state, federal and military are often called to serve daily in a variety of ways throughout the great State of Washington. In many cases, their commitment extends well past a day at work and these same caring individuals are the coaches, mentors and leaders in their own communities.

Washington’s public safety agencies work collaboratively to safeguard life and property even in the face of personal harm on a daily basis. We would like the citizens of Washington State to take the time to show your support for the public safety community by letting them know that you “Stand With Those Who Serve”.
