Thank you for the meal Willows!

Every business meeting we as a fire department get together and share a meal. This is an opportunity to catch up, take a pulse as an organization and just relax for an hour a month. When a wonderful group, such as the Willows of Swisher, come in and cook and clean it is such a blessing to not have to worry about prep, cook and cleaning as well. Thank you!

If you or any group you know would like to support the fire department through meals or meal prep please contact us at 319.857.4343 or jmfd@southslope.net

Always There to Help!

Jefferson Monroe Fire Department

We responded to a multi vehicle accident recently. The team members were able to ensure the victims quick medical care and transport. As the scene was getting ready to clear we saw an additional, separate vehicle with a flat tire. To ensure safety and get traffic flow back to its rightful pace an Officer and two JMFD members stepped up and changed the tire in the safety of our blocking vehicles.



Thank you for the meal 4H!

Every business meeting, we as a fire department, get together and share a meal. This is an opportunity to catch up, take a pulse as an organization and just relax for an hour a month. When a wonderful group, such as the local Monroe Hustlers 4H club, come in and cook and clean it is such a blessing to not have to worry about prep, cook and cleaning as well. Thank you!

Looking for Help for a Loved One!

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.

GOFUNDME for Kristian

We don’t ask this often or lightly. Please help if you can!

 

Solon House Fire

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.
