Farewell Engineer Heineken

Max's Last Day

March 22nd was Engineer/EMT2 Max Heineken’s last shift as a scholarship firefighter with our department. Max has done an oustanding job exceeding our expecations by rapidly progressing to an Engineer’s position.  Max has accepted a position with the Fairbanks Fire Dept. and will soon be moving on to the next chapter in his fire service career. We wish him all the best at FFD.

Congratulations to our Scholarship Firefighter’s for their academic achievement

We would like to congratulate the following student firefighters for making the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Chancellors and Dean’s lists. This is a great accomplishment while volunteering 56 hours a week and being a full-time student.

Noah Hamm

Linsey Murphy

Adrian Rodriquez

SCOTT Firefighter Stair-climb

Members of the department will be running up 69 flights of stairs in full fire gear and SCBA. While we welcome the challenge, we are doing this to fight blood cancers. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

We would love for you to support our department. Your tax deductible donation helps in the fight against blood cancers.

What is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested nearly $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives.

Every day, more than 350 LLS sponsored researchers come closer to the goal of finding a cure for leukemia and related blood cancers. Locally, LLS funds 4 researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enables us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community.

Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause! Remember, every dollar counts when someone’s life depends on it!

We are shaving our heads to raise money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers? It’s true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So we decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.

Now we need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.

 

 

Thank you for your support.

We would like to thank Steve Adams for his continued support of our Department. Mr. Adams has been a long supporter of Steese with his advice and mentorship. Recently he donated a new flagpole for Station 61 and recently donated money towards the purchase of new winter jackets for our members. Because of his generosity, we were recently able to finish our project of purchasing new winter jackets for our members. These jackets are warmer and much more visible than our old jackets. Mr. Adams is a shining example of why Fairbanks is called the Golden Heart City.
