11/22/2014 - Water Tender Drill

FVFD held an interagency water tender drill with Loleta, Fortuna, and Rio Dell Fire Departments at Fernbridge Tractor to see how much water we could pump in a rural situation. Turns out, quite a bit, over 750 gallons per minute. Should help our ISO rating, which may help your fire insurance rates.

12/6/2014 - Putting Up Christmas Lights

We had some of the best weather ever for putting up the lights this year. At 7am when we started it was a balmy 51 degrees, no rain, and no wind. After all the tree trimming done during the year, it was easier getting the lights up and it looks a lot better without the hunch on the east side.
