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). This event is hosted by City of Puyallup - Government. 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!

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. Pictured is FF Hepler as he administered oxygen to 3 of the 5 cats rescued. We are honored to serve this community and to help in any and all ...ways we can!

Way to go, Captain Farris! Teaching young kids about fire and life safety is a major commitment our department has in our community because we know that delivering important, critical messaging throughout a lifespan can develop safe habits!
Happy Fire Prevention Week, Pierce County!

🎉PARAMEDIC PINNING🎉
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!

Today is the first day of Fire Prevention Week, and we have some fun things planned for our community to promote this year's theme "Cooking Safety Starts With You!"
🎥: Each day this week, we will have a short video to share with you in our stories with tips you can put into ...practice to keep you and your family safe.

What an amazing day in Orting yesterday. The Open House at Station 40 was a blast!

We were joined by staff from DNR, USGS, Pierce County Conservation and many more. We had the safety house “on fire” for the kids and practiced loading the Medic Units for transport to the Hospital. We ...topped off the event with a youth combat challenge and a great ride through town in the parade.

Orting Valley Fire and Rescue is one cool shop and the community involvement was over the top.

Thanks for a fun day all around!
