The PVFD members and their families came together again this December for their annual PVFD Christmas Party. This year, we recognized FF Sam Thrash for being voted Firefighter of the Year.
Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours!
Howdy Ponder! Hope all is well with everyone. What an enjoyable September except for the darn ragweed and other allergy culprits. Things are going well here at PVFD. We had a member land a Firefighter job with Oak Point. Congratulations Brice Swafford. We have a couple of others going through the testing process with area departments, but it is not easy or a quick process. We have two in school and they are both doing excellent. Stay with it fellas! October is here and Halloween is around the corner. Remember to make sure the kiddos are easily seen if you go candy shopping at night. Also make sure where ever you go that you know the neighborhood. Those of us that drive be diligent in keeping an eye out for the candy connoiseurs. We are getting more into the holiday season and I am sure Christmas decorations will be going up soon. Please check all the light cords for any bare wire exposed. If the wire on your lights is stiff or brittle it would be a good idea to replace. Make sure outdoor lights are made for outdoor use. Lots of cooking comes with this time of year, so be mindful of any ankle bitters running around the kitchen or close to hot appliances. For you fryers out there, make sure you are in an area that won't catch fire if you have a boil over of oil. We will remind all again in the next review post. PVFD responded to 32 calls for service last month and our members dedicated 60 man hours for these responses. As always this is on top of weekly training and station duties. We can't thank them enough nor their families. Until next month, take care and God Bless all.
