Captain Mike Haefner’s last shift was on Tuesday for Steese. Although we are sad to lose a team member we are excited for him to start a new adventure. Thank you for your years of service and good luck in your future endeavors.

Station 62 Training Room Remodel

Thanks to the Chena Hot Springs Revenue Sharing Grant we were able to add much needed sleeping quarters to Station 62’s training room. This allows for more personnel to pull shift responding to fire and EMS calls and we still have room for training.
