The Bald Hills Fire District, located outside Yelm on Bald Hills Rd. near the Clearwood Community
held an Open House Meet & Greet on Tuesday, July 3.
This writer and his wife went and met the volunteers, staff and their families and learned alot about
the direction of the newly independent fire district.
They hold meetings open to the public every Tuesaday evening at 7pm at the Fire Station.
These fine people are asking for your support, direction, involvement & input.
Quoting Bill Owen,
“We are starting a “First Responder” class in September. This is the first time that this class has ever been given in our fire district. We’d like anyone who wants to volunteer to be a medical responder to attend this class. The class will go into December, meeting two nights a week and some weekends. It will teach many life saving and assesment skills. Graduates from this class will be our first line of defence (sic) in medial (sic) response.
There is an organizational meeting along with audio of a recent code that will be discussed July 31 at 1900 hrs at the fire station. There is also an all day CPR class
Aug 14 (need to verify the date), and no one that doesn’t pass the class can enroll in the First Responder class.”
