Mark Gregory, Fire Chief
From Bill Owen, Fire Commissioner:
Would you please put the word out that the Bald Hills fire dept. has a web site (finally) which is www.baldhillsfire.org
On this web site we have the up coming schedule for CPR and first aid classes.
These classes are open to the public which, I believe, satisfies the requirements for teachers, healthcare workers, etc to be current in these skills.
Unlike community colleges which charge $50-$70, these classes are free (there will be a nominal charge for the first aid class to cover our cost of materials, probably $20 or less).
Anyone who wants to take these classes needs to register in advance.
Call the fire station, 360.894.2517, to register.
The Bald Hills Fire Dept. service area comprising 38 square miles with a population of almost 3,000.
We would love to have anyone interested in either helping us out, or who have questions or ideas drop by for a visit.
We have a dinner on the first Tuesday of the month, and are open all other Tuesday evenings (7-10 PM). Also the Chief is in during “banker hours” most of the time.
The fire commissioners meet at 8 AM on the second Thursday of the month and we welcome visitors, especially if you come with suggestions how we can serve the community better.
Too many folks think that we are only interested in those people who want to volunteer as fire fighters. In fact there is a place here for everyone.
The fire house is a community facility an is available for community activities, meetings etc.
We’ll even make the coffee.
This writer & his wife (and our dog) have visited these gatherings on more than one occasion and loved interacting with these fine people.
WON’T YOU STOP BY AND TELL THESE FINE PEOPLE YOU READ ABOUT THEM ON THE YELM COMMUNITY BLOG!
