We at the Jefferson Monroe Fire Department are looking for some support from those around us. One of our past member’s son in law recently suffered from a major stroke. His name is Kristian Leitzen. His wife and 2 kids (age 2 and 4) were looking to celebrate the oldest’s birthday this weekend. Instead they are making changes to their plans.

We are asking the community to send cards of support to:

Leitzen Family care of D’Lynn and Todd

1218 Winchester Circle NE

Swisher Iowa 52338.

Additionally you can support the immense burden this event is through their GOFUNDME page located here.

Anytime the call goes out we are happy to respond. Solon made an astute identification of the fire load and equipment demand.

Swisher had just returned from its 3rd call of the day for a vehicle entrapment on one of our busy highways. We were resetting up trucks for next call when the radio traffic began.

All agencies were able to get on scene quickly, as dispatched, and provide fast fire suppression.

An initial interior attack was later called back out as there was partial collapse. Then quickly switching to large water from NL quint 114. Which allowed teams to go back in to search all remaining void spaces.

We have such a wonderful community that supports us. We have been looking for new tooling to help be able to handle the large trucks that pass through our district on F12 and 380 every minute.

The Swisher Men’s Club stepped up in a very big way to help cover 50% of a new airbag system that will help our stabilization and lifting abilities to get at those in need.
