Tradition and family are two things that are extremely important to the fire service.

On Monday, January 13th we got to celebrate both tradition and family at LOWVFD. Captain Aaron Lovell presided over the helmet transfer ceremony for Firefighter Ryan Lovell, his son. The Lovells have a proud tradition in the fire service so we all are extremely proud of Ryan for carrying this tradition forward to the next generation. Please take a moment to congratulate Firefighter Ryan Lovell on his dedication to LOWVFD and our community.

Great job Ryan!

Four fundamental elements of teamwork are: relationships, communications, procedures and goals.
Each day whether we are simply grabbing an extra bucket, or hose, to help wash the apparatus, meeting with our community partners to build on our communication, reviewing our preplans, or assisting a member practicing their aerial ladder skills, we all accomplish more when we work together.
Keep up the great work members.

As part of our Community Risk Reduction campaign we wanted to take a moment to highlight some "Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips" for your awareness.

Did you know?

Carbon Monoxide is often called "the silent killer?" This is because Carbon Monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (e.g. gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, or methane) burn incompletely.

Please review our safety sheet from the NFPA to become more familiar with Carbon Monoxide, home heating equipment and why CO alarms should be installed in your homes.

NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT APPRECIATION DAY
Across the country on January 9th each year, citizens take the lead to show support on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

Law Enforcement Officers of every rank and file have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities. They’ve answered a call to public service that is demanding and often unappreciated.

At Lake of the Woods Volunteer Rescue we want to take a moment to show our support for our friends, neighbors and partners in this community.
