Thank you Muzzy!

We want everyone to take some time to thank and wish Captain Christopher Muszynski and his family a blessed future.
They have announced they are moving some time ago and have been working through the transition to a new home soon.
They will be moving outside of the district and Chris has been working to transition his duties to others at the department.
Chris and his family have been part of JMFD since 2004. During his time he has been instrumental as a fellow firefighter and as Training Captain! All of our members have learned from Muzzy and his legacy lives here through our member’s ability to perform under pressure. Muzzy was instrumental in many of our apparatus decisions and acquisitions, tools and our IT. We will miss the hell out of you as you transition but are excited about your new adventures!!

The Christmas parties will be a little less entertaining but you’re always welcome home here Muzzy!

Best of luck
– Love your JMFD family!!!

Work Hard! Play Hard!

It’s always great to get out and hang out with neighboring departments. Swap some stories and get some hoseline practice with a little competition.

We’re out here representing Swisher at the Ely waterball fights. A big Thank you to those members staying in district to allow this to happen!!

We spend a large amount of time reviewing our tools and trucks to make sure we have them setup for our district’s response needs. We comb over as many scenarios as we can to find ways to improve responses. Last year we began a process to create a Johnson’s County based alliance to educate and train with multiple agencies for water delivery. The organization that came out to help coordinate our training was Gotbigwater (http://gotbigwater.com.) they took notice and featured one of our main water supply trucks in their May issue; Truck 143.
