All posts for the day March 5th, 2018

With growing numbers of vehicle accidents we will be hosting an additional Vehicle Extrication Training Saturday, March 10th, 9am – 12.

As a member, if you were not able to attend last September we implore you join us on Saturday to brush up on the skills and tools required for fast and safe extrication.

This training will be put on by none other than our own Brian Marak with ICFD!

 Here’s a Training video from our last go around.

Train Hard!

Train True!

Train Often!

At Jefferson Monroe Fire department we are made of a wide variety of people and backgrounds. For those of you who have visited our facilities you have probably noticed the inspirational artwork in our upstairs entry and Weight room.

We want to introduce to you one our amazing first responders and talented artists.
