Your Central Pierce crew will be at @southhillmall on December 8th from 1pm-5pm wrapping gifts!

The Local 726 Benevolent Fund exists to support the needs within our community. While the reach of this fund is wide, some notable contributions are as follows:
(1) Donations and supports to Pierce County families in need throughout the year. (2) The Annual Holiday Giving Program, which sponsors the entire holiday experience for many families (including gifts and much-needed food). (3) Sponsorship of scholarships. (4) Donations to a 9/11 5k Run. (5) Funding toward the Coats for Kids Program, run by the Washington Council of Fire Fighters.
All donations collected during the gift-wrapping event will be deposited directly into the Benevolent Fund and then poured back into the community to help lighten the burden of hardship during times of need. @pierce_county_firefighters_726...
Does your home look like this on holidays? Happy Thanksgiving from our crews to your families! We see an increase in cooking fires today and this photo shows why:
🦃 too many people in the kitchen can cause mayhem and lead to people getting burned
🦃 using all the hot appliances in the kitchen need extra attention, especially while children are running around.
🦃 don’t leave cooking unattended; set timers so you don’t burn your delicious dishes
🦃 don’t overload your ovens and stoves or overfill your pots and pans.
More than anything though, enjoy this holiday with your loved ones. It’s okay if you don’t invite us over this year, but when the community needs us, A Shift is ready!

Early this morning, around 2:30 am, crews responded to a fire in Midland. All residents evacuated upon arrival and are safe. This is a great reminder to make sure you have working smoke alarms — it’s not likely that the smell of smoke will wake you up at night, but that alarm sounding will.

"There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others."
We are sad to report we lost one of our own this week, Community Service Volunteer Chris Mock. On behalf of Central Pierce Fire & Rescue, we extend our deepest condolences to Chris's family and loved ones.
She was an inspiration to us all, and the memory of her courage, kind words, constant compassion, and drive to help others will be treasured among all those who knew Chris.

Cold weather is here and the @pierce_county_firefighters_726 and @communitiesinschools are ensuring that kids in our communities have warm winter coats. 1/5 kids live below the poverty line locally and warm coats aren’t always an option to be provided. Today we delivered 145 coats to local kids! #coatsforkids #centralpiercefire #local726 #puyallupschooldistrict #bethelschooldistrict #franklinpierceschooldistrict...
We are proud to participate in the Veterans Day program today at Pioneer Park in Puyallup. To those in uniform serving today and to those who have served in the past, we honor you today and every day. Thank you Veterans!
Firefighters Rescue ten-year-old from a mobile home fire in South Hill Puyallup.
Pierce County, WA — Central Pierce Fire & Rescue responded to a fire at Hidden Glen Estates, a mobile home park located at 15616 76th Ave E, just after 7 pm Thursday night with reports of a child trapped in the back of a home.
Firefighters entered through a window which was said to be that of the child's bedroom. A search of the room under very thick smoke conditions led to a child who was quickly passed out the window to awaiting firefighters.
Medics transported the child to Good Samaritan Hospital; after which the child was transported to Harborview Medical Center and is currently in intensive care.
One person was treated and released by medic crews at the scene for a minor hand laceration. No other injuries were reported.
The fire was under control around 9 pm. Damage to the home is substantial with only minor damage to neighboring structures.
Crews from Graham Fire & Rescue and deputies from the Pierce County Sheriff's Department also assisted at the scene.

Thank you to Misty Mountain Learning Academy for inviting us out to talk about fire safety! The pre-k kids got a chance to play “Follow the Firefighter” to practice crawling low under smoke and heat (swipe ➡️ for a video)!
🗣Smoke is Serious.
Engine 73 responded to a call where smoke was coming out from under a deck but without any visible flames. We applaud the diligence of this homeowner to take the smoke seriously because upon inspection and pulling up part of the deck, a large portion of wood was burnt and continued to smolder. In short, that smoldering can lead to a much more significant fire given the right conditions and time.
Our crew and deputy fire marshal were able to extinguish the smoldering and identify how widespread the damage was. Thankfully no one was hurt and this remains a functioning residence.
