For many of us, it feels like 2020 has been the year of eternity. Did our worlds get turned upside down? Absolutely. We've had to reset goals, start over & maybe look at other opportunities. This was no different for your Fire District that serves you every day.
We too experienced another busy & ever-changing year here at Frederick-Firestone Fire District. Even with the numerous unforeseen challenges we faced this year as an organization we remained focused on HOPE & THRIVING. We are getting through these challenges by taking care of one another, serving each other, not only within our organization but within our community. We see it, we experience it & trust us, we appreciate being able to serve such an outstanding community. We want to remind all of our District’s citizens, businesses & visitors that we are continually planning, strategizing, working to make your lives safer & better every day. We will rise to the occasion time and again, no matter what today or the future holds.
In late April, I shared with our men & women a help tool I utilize each day to help me remain calm & confident when the world around us seems to be upside down.
What am I grateful for regarding our current situation?
In what way can we serve & add value to our members and community?
What gives me confidence today?
If you don’t control it, why worry & let it control me?
This may work for you, & it may not. However, given the year we have all experienced, I am willing to put as many life tools in my toolbox as I can.
I would be remised if we did not provide you a safety message for the upcoming Christmas and holiday celebrations. The month of December for us reminds of the increased risk of home fires. Home fires during the holiday season often involve cooking, Christmas trees, candles & holiday decorations. Please follow all manufacturers recommendations and practice good fire safety this holiday season. Visit our website www.fffd.us
