On behalf of Douglas County Fire District 2, we would like to congratulate Eastmont High School’s Graduating class of 2020. We wish you success on your future endeavors!!
We would like you to meet our newest hire, Josh Bollinger. Josh started on the 17th of this month on A-shift. Josh was a former 2 year resident firefighter with our organization. Congrats Josh and welcome aboard!
On behalf of Douglas County Fire District #2, we would like to thank these outstanding young gentleman for their quick actions today that resulted in a difference. Our units responded this afternoon to the 1600 block of 8th Street SE in East Wenatchee for a structure fire. These young men called 9-1-1 after seeing a plume of smoke that didn’t appear normal and had no inclination of what was on fire. The boys then helped guide units to the house after conflicting reports on two different streets. This seamless move gave responders critical information and the residents the best chance of receiving quick help. The homeowners were able to escape and used two extinguishers that aided in minimizing damage to their house. Outstanding job by all and we couldn’t be prouder. We encourage homeowners to have a dry chemical extinguisher accessible inside the home in the event of a fire. Today’s house fires burn hotter and faster then ever before and a simple extinguisher was proven to make the difference. @wenatcheeworld @ncwlifechannel @ifiber_one_news #dcfd2
Douglas County Fire District 2, EWPD and DCSO led Eastmont High School Cheer Leaders out of town this morning as they depart onward to their state competition in Battle Ground, WA. Good luck ladies ! @ncwlifechannel @wenatcheeworld @ifiber_one_news @eastmontschools
It was an exciting afternoon at Fire District 2 headquarters station. 5 newly promoted officers and 5 new firefighters received their badges and helmets today. The newly promoted officers and firefighters have created a staffing model that places an additional engine company on duty each day staffed 24/7. These firefighters will operate out of station 1 downtown on Eastmont Avenue. Additionally a training officer and a fire prevention officer have been assigned to work days. When station 4 is completed in the upcoming year the additional engine company will move to that location at 35th and NW Cascade Avenue. Fire District 2 is striving to meet the growing needs of the community. Congratulations to those pinned today! @wenatcheeworld @ncwlifechannel @ifiber_one_news
Today marks the first day in Douglas County Fire District 2 history where two engine companies will be staffed 24/7 serving the citizens of fire district 2.
