January 7, 2018 was Spencer Bourque’s last shift with us. He has accepted a job with Renton Fire Department. Spencer was a scholarship Firefighter for us and his sense of humor and hard work will be missed. We wish you the best in your career.
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.
