Lakewood 4 Memorial Ceremony 2023
In honorable memory of Officer Tina Griswold, Officer Ronald Owens, Sgt. Mark Renninger, and Officer Greg Richards.
There are no words to describe the pain and grief that ripples through the police and fire community as we remember these four and the horrific act of violence that took their lives. To honor their memory, we strive each day to care for their loved ones, for one another, and for our community.
'Tis the season to see Santa on the fire engine in your neighborhood! This year, Central Pierce is lending a fire engine for Santa to ride on through the Santa Parade in downtown Puyallup (happening on December 2nd from 5-6 pm) hosted by @ourpuyallup. Then, Santa is coming back to our fire district through the Parkland, Spanaway, and Sunrise neighborhoods on December 9th, beginning around 3:30 pm. This year, we will have a live Santa tracker on for you to follow his route and see when he'll be near your home! That tracker will be posted on the day of the Santa Run.
We hope to see you in one of these four areas this year! 🚒💚❤️✨
Station 62 News: This weekend was a special and momentous time for Central Pierce and our Brookdale community with the official re-opening of Station 62! As many of you know, 62 was formerly our logistics station, but as times and the needs of our community changed, it became clear that we needed to remodel it into an operable station. On Saturday, the on-duty crews from 61 joined the 62 crew to officially push Medic 62 into the station!
📸 the first crew to staff the unit: Lt/PM Hudspeth and FF/EMT McKinnon....
Happy Thanksgiving from our crews to your families! Does your home look like this on holidays? We see an increase in cooking fires on Thanksgiving, and this photo shows a few reasons why:
🦃 too many people in the kitchen can cause mayhem and lead to people getting burned (kick them out to go watch football so the cooks have the space they need).
🦃 using all the hot appliances in the kitchen needs 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, C Shift is ready!

The Forge 2023-A1 has been working on fire suppression. Here are some highlights from their time with Live Fire. This group left for North Bend today, along with an entire cadre of instructors, to continue working on this critical component of the job.
The Forge: Central Pierce • @eastpiercefire • @westpiercefire • @graham_fire_rescue
Lt./PM Tim Rioux, Lt. Jason Brown, Lt. Kyle Yarbrough, Lt. Kelly Vining, Lt./PM TJ Poe, and Lt. Joseph Snyder (from left to right).
Please join us in celebrating and congratulating our newest officers! Today we had the honor of presenting them with their red helmets. These six men have served this community with dignity, honor, and compassion; we are excited for them to thrive in their new leadership role.
Sounds of Safety + a ladder truck tour = a great field trip! Did you know we provide education to our local elementary schools on a variety of fire and life safety topics? We are piloting our Sounds of Safety program in 2024 and Mrs. Lux’s 3rd grade class was kind enough to be our first class and take a field trip to learn all about smoke alarms, what firefighters do after a smoke alarm is activated, and the equipment we use to keep the community safe.

This afternoon, crews responded to a residential fire and were able to work quickly and effectively to both extinguish the fire and save 5 cats from inside.

Reposted from Fruitland ES: “It’s fire prevention week and Kindergarteners had a blast learning all about fire safety today. Some 1st graders and 3rd graders joined in the fun too since their dad happened to be the firefighter in charge!
Thanks Mr. Farris, we appreciate you!!”

This week, the EMS division was honored to host the official pinning of 3 new paramedics. Join us in congratulating and celebrating FF/PM Solon Nodal, FF/PM Bryan Phan, and FF/PM Brooks Patterson. After receiving their EMS Coin and Caduceus Pin, all three of them echoed the same sentiments with giving thanks to their families and EMS/Paramedic mentors who supported and guided them through this process. It's an honor to have them in our fire department serving this wonderful community!

On October 1st, 2023, Graham Fire & Rescue and Central Pierce Fire & Rescue launched an exciting partnership to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of emergency response through the shared utilization of a Battalion Chief (BC), known as Battalion 91.
This joint initiative aims to achieve several significant benefits, including enhanced safety, reduced response times, resource optimization, and increased effectiveness of firefighting efforts within our respective fire districts.
What is a BC? The BC is responsible for managing all significant emergency incidents, such as house fires or motor vehicle accidents with entrapment. The BC assumes the role of Incident Commander and develops a plan of action to mitigate the incident by establishing incident goals and objectives that consider personnel safety, rescue needs, and property conservation.
Battalion 91 responds out of Graham Fire & Rescue Station 91 and is staffed with two BCs from Central Pierce Fire & Rescue and one BC from Graham Fire & Rescue.

The Forge, Pierce County Fire Training Consortium (PCFTC), is made up of Central Pierce Fire & Rescue, Graham Fire & Rescue, East Pierce Fire & Rescue, and West Pierce Fire & Rescue.

This month, we remember those within our organization, our community, and globally who have been impacted by breast cancer. Our pink patch serves as a token of solidarity with those who are fighting, those who survived, and for those grieving someone who lost their battle. #BreastCancerAwareness...
Reposted from Pierce County Emergency Management: SEPTEMBER 22 UPDATE: The Stage 2 Burn Ban for unincorporated Pierce County is over at noon. The recent trend of cooler temperatures and some precipitation makes it possible to remove the Stage 2 Burn Ban.
✔️ Recreational fires in backyards, campgrounds, etc. are allowed.
The Pierce County Fire Marshal still strongly advises caution with recreational fires and keeping them small, having a water source nearby and completely extinguishing them.
A Burn Ban for unincorporated Pierce County remains in effect.
❌ This means burning yard debris and clearing land is not allowed.

Helping to keep your children safe at the fair and in the community!
New York Life Insurance has joined us at Station 70 inside the fairgrounds sponsoring free ID cards for children. While inside the fair, we are still providing free bracelets to reunite lost guests. However, the ID Cards you can get for the next 5 days are a keepsake you take with you that includes a picture, fingerprint, and identifying information which help you assist law enforcement with recovery/reunification in case of a lost child.
