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.

Founding Member Visits Steese

We received a visit from one of our founding Steese VFD members, Walt Weese today. He was accompanied by his son Dan and daughter-in-law Heather. We had a great time reminiscing and showing them the changes to the Department and service area.
