“Thank you for protecting our home. You have no idea how much you all are appreciated. Our family lost our house to a house fire 11 years ago in Ellensburg, last night felt like reliving it for our family. God bless you all, stay safe, and prayers are being sent to heaven!”
“Bless your hearts, each and every one who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our community and families!”
“Watching the flames come towards my family’s home as we evacuated, I was sure our house was going to be gone when we came back. There are not enough thank yous in the world to let each and every one of you know how much we appreciate you.”
“We called and scheduled Messiah Lutheran Preschool to take a tour of the Fire Department. Scheduling was super easy. We took 46 preschool kiddos ranging from ages 3-6 within a 2 day period. The firemen were very friendly and knew how to talk to the kids. Our kiddos were able to practice fire safety techniques to keep them safe right next to the firemen. The kids will of course say their favorite part would be receiving fire hats and seeing the big fire truck. We will definitely be planning another field trip next year. Thanks so much.”
