Yesterday, with the help of the Greater Eagle Fire Protection District we sent out our first firefighter on an out of district wildland deployment. Tanner Perkins is working with a crew from GEFPD. We are excited for the opportunities to grow our wildland program and help when there is a call for duty. These members must commit up to 18 days before returning home. A big commitment. Stay safe out there.
Recently learned we had a hot shot crew back in the 80’s and sent out volunteers into the early 2000’s. ... See MoreSee Less
