ChelanFireRescueLogo200Enjoy a free lunch and fun for the entire family

Chelan, WA. March 24, 2017 - On April 15, 2017, Chelan Fire & Rescue, in conjunction with Chelan’s celebration of Earth Day, will host a Safety Day at the Station 71/Headquarters, located at 232 E. Wapato Avenue in downtown Chelan. This family fun event will run from 10 AM – 4 PM. Community members are invited to come and enjoy touring the fire station, learn ways to stay safe, enjoy a free lunch that will begin at 12-noon.

With the community celebrating Earth Day firefighters want to do their part by hosting this event that is designed to help members of the community learn more about what they can do to keep their homes and family safe. Visitors will be able to see fire engines and equipment up close and visit directly with firefighters about the important and life saving work they do.

Information on Firewise (wildfire prevention), car seats, smoke alarms and more will be available. Special guests from Chelan Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Life Flight and Rivercom 9-1-1 will also be available to provide information about the invaluable work they do and the role they play in an emergency situation. The community will also have the opportunity to learn what they can do to help in an emergency and how to quickly access these services.

Everyone is encouraged to attend and bring the entire family.

ChelanFireRescueLogo20003/21/2017 at 0824 hours, Chelan Fire and Rescue’s (CFR) Engine 71, 79, Rescue 71, Medic 3171, Tender 71 and Chief 702  responded to a commercial fire at 60 SR150, Zippy Disposal Service, for a fire in one of their shops.  

First unit arrived within two minutes from time of dispatch to find smoke coming from the building and the remains of a fire that had been knocked down by employees using portable fire extinguishers.  CFR crews finished extinguishing the fire and checked for possible extension.  

Damage was limited to a garbage container with minor heat and smoke damage to a wall and work bench area. Cause of the fire is under investigation.

Value of the building is estimated at about $138,000.00. There was no structural damage and minimal damage to the contents.

CFR gives Zippy Disposal Service a big at-a-boy for having their extinguishers available and employees taking appropriate, safe action, to limit fire spread  by knocking the main body of the fire down.

This is a great example of why everyone should have fire extinguishers and have them serviced annually to make sure they are in good working order. Good Job to Zippy Disposal Service employees.
