First we would like to THANK, very sincerely, all of our volunteers who so selflessly battled wildland fires across the county last year. Crook County is unique among all the counties in the state about not only the number of trained firefighters and EMTs we have, but what they do. Our volunteers range from state senators and representatives, county commissioners (all three), city council persons, single parents (morns and dads), ranchers, oil field workers, miners, law enforce- ment officers, teachers, waitresses, retirees, clerks, stay at home parents, students, construction workers and many more. In fact just about every type of occupation in the county makes up who our volunteers are. As a group they are dedicated to serv- Thank You A heartfelt thank you to everyone who came to my con- cert and all the donations, to Cheryl Wales and Todd Kahler for making it happen, and Wes Duvall, Amber Redfield, Lance Bergstrom and Ashlie for sharing your talent. I am truly blessed/ Stacy DuvaU Our Thanks The family of C W Anderson thanks you for your prayers, cards, memorial attendance and gifts. Visits ing our county. This privilege requires man hours,2f continuoua2xnd lov.c,,extended to us at our time of loss. ing meetings and maintaining equipment. It also requires dedication to helping Teena Anderson and Family our neighbors, willingly accepting time taken away from your family, the money spent in travel, personnel gear and lost wages. There is also a large financial cost to the tax payer both to the residents of the municipalities and the county. Here is an example era typical fire or emergency response; it is 6p.m. Sunday night, you and your family are planning to go out for the evening. A page goes off that there is fire on Spring Creek. You make apologies to your family and head to your fire unit. Depending on where you live you might have units parked at your home or have to drive to your fire hall. Either way you quickly get into your vehicle and head to the fire. Now remember this firefighter has spent countless hours maintaining and equipping the fire unit. They have ensured that it is full of fuel, water and that not only will it start but the pumps, hoses, and hand tools are in working order. There is a good chance the fire is at least 20 miles away and probably more, but because we have volunteers located all over the county the response time regardless of where the fire is generally pretty quick. Upon arrival you find the IC or Incident Com- mander and receive your instructions. You see high flames and lots of smoke. You quickly assess the situation, ensure you are safe and begin performing your assign- ment. You are confident of your abilities and those firefighters around you. Luckily the fire is fairly small, the fuels light and it is contained fairly quickly. It's around midnight, you're tired, your eyes hurt and you're coughing from all the smoke you have breathed in. Now the really fun work begins, mop up. During mop up you go and extinguish all burning embers, chopping and wetting them to ensure they are fully extinguished because if not, the wind will reignite it and the fire will flare back up. Mop up is really dirty, hard nasty work, but it has to be done. You and your team finish up around 3 a.m. Now you really know what tired is. You return home, fuel the truck, top off your water and head for the house. Upon arriving home you strip your clothes off at the door because you're filthy dirty. You then take a shower and fall into bed exhausted. At 6:30 you are up and running again to your real job. In all of this we have our wives, friends and auxiliary, finding food at all hours of the day and night. We are hungry from having missed supper and they supply our volunteers with much needed nourishment. Last year we had 325 fires; this scene with many variations was conducted by our volunteers for nearly six months. Fo[ this privifge [,serve the county they received an"bc'ao Tliih !YJ  meal on the e' il aT-ftii't'. ''' '" In,closing,,we,utant to,thank these men and womewho exercise their privilege to serve this county, the businesses who allow them the time off to serve our county. The donations we receive from both private and corporate entities to ensure we can equip our volunteers. To our elected officials who support our departments both on the fire line and in their elected positions of the county and state.
