   Living in an agricultural area, we tend to think in seasons. As fall is rapidly approaching, we will be preparing for “harvest” season. Often workers are required to enter grain bins. This leaves the risk of entrapment or injury.

   On July 21, 2022 at 16:59 Sheldon Fire was paged out to 821 4th St. for a report of a basement fire.

Welcome friends, families and fellow firefighters,

   With great honor the Iowa Falls Fire Department and families would like to welcome you to the City of Iowa Falls for the 2022 Iowa Firefighters Convention.

   Happy Belated Birthday Smokey Bear! Yes, Smokey Bear celebrated his 78th Birthday on August 9th. We must continue to share Smokey’s important message to Prevent Wildfires with friends, family and patrons of our fire districts. The legend of Smokey Bear continues to be represented and promoted in a variety of ways.

   Well, here we go again!  That open-range of beautifully-sculptured “mountains” between Banner and Scotts Bluff counties in rural western Nebraska was anything but during the early evening of Saturday, July 30.

Breakfast a success

   So, as I write this, it is Valentine’s Day, and you read it in the middle of March. I like to give gifts as much as most people and do want my loved ones to know I care like all of you.

Plenty of training

   First and foremost, I wish to pass my condolences along to the families, friends, and department members of Chancellor Fire Chief Jeb Ford, and, Lake County Deputy Braxton Hofman.

Fairbury responds

   Fairbury Rural Fire responded to a house fire on Jan. 1 with Jansen Fire providing mutual aid. Heavy smoke and strong winds reduced visibility, and snow and ice made it slick.

Time flies

   As the old saying goes “time sure flies by when you’re having fun!!”. That’s how I have been feeling with my position as your Secretary Treasurer of this Great Association!
