Winter driving: Most of us have done it for years. Still, a little reminder on staying safe when the snow flies never hurt anyone. Because when it comes down to it, the weather is what’s really in charge.
So, here you have it from our winter driving guru Sgt. Ruben Marichalar. ... See MoreSee Less

Mostly he taught what customer service was all about in the Fire service...Today Phoenix Fire Department celebrated the life of former PFD Fire Chief Alan V. Brunacini with Public Safety friends from around the world. Bruno was truly the Worlds Fire Chief. His contributions to our great career field are immeasurable. His dedication to Firefighter Safety, taking care of “Mrs. Smith”, & treating every person we come into contact with as a Customer have shaped not just Phoenix Fire Department but Fire Departments around the globe. There are no words to express how much we will all miss our friend, our mentor, our “boss”. Thank you Chief!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Depending on some weather sources, we can possibly expect 1 to 3 inches of snow on Friday. Whether it's flurries or a blizzard, one thing is for certain... WINTER IS COMING!!!
Please use this time to check/stock your vehicle with emergency supplies. Some items to consider placing in your vehicle; blankets, flares (battery powered last longer) non-perishable food (granola bars), spare phone charging cord, high visibility vest.
It's also important to ensure that your furnaces and/or fireplaces in your homes are in proper working condition. Deadly carbon monoxide can kill families. Make sure your heat sources are in proper working order and that you have latest generation smoke and CO detectors in place with fresh batteries. ... See MoreSee Less

The LSCVFD is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) Grant in the amount of $144,724 through FEMA this past week. Funding for this project is under their Operations and Safety program and will provide our firefighters with current airpacks/breathing apparatus/harnesses as well as a new compressor for filling the airpacks. The airpacks will also provide improved interoperability with our neighboring mutual aid departments as well. We are very fortunate and very thankful to have been a recipient of this grant as it provides a great relief on the fire department budget and our five cities' budgets as well! Thank you to all involved in making this a successful grant application! ... See MoreSee Less

Pancake Breakfast - 2017 - Hudson Fire Dept.
This is one of our 2 annual fundraisers events for the Hudson Fire Dept. The pancake breakfast is the favorite of the firefighters because we get to open up the station to the general public and let everyone into our lives and where we get to work each day.
Our firefighters enjoy serving hand crafted pancakes, smoked breakfast sausage, eggs, pastries, fruit and yogurt to all of the community members. For this event all we ask is for a good will donation to the Hudson Fire Company #1 501c3 non-profit.
This year we decided to move the event from the spring to the fall and have the event in connection with National Fire Prevention Week.
The money raised will be going to support Health and Wellness initiatives set up for all of the Hudson Fire Fighters. We are also looking into purchasing some equipment not able to be put into the annual budget for the department and these donations will be used for those purchases.
Thank you for supporting the Hudson Fire Department and we hope to see you on Oct 15th for some pancakes. ... See MoreSee Less
PLEASE move over...
Minnesota State Patrol
You see flashing lights up ahead on the interstate. It becomes clear a trooper or other law enforcement official has a vehicle pulled over. What do you do? Hopefully you obey the law and move over like most of the drivers in this traffic cam footage.
Moving over for emergency vehicles and tow trucks is the law in Minnesota. Reduce your speed if you are unable to safely move over a lane. The Ted Foss Move Over Law is named after one of our troopers. Ted Foss was killed 17 years ago tomorrow during a traffic stop in southern Minnesota. Unfortunately, 194 State Patrol squads have been struck and 54 troopers have been injured since 2008 by passing motorists
There will be extra enforcement of the Ted Foss Move Over Law tomorrow across Minnesota. ... See MoreSee Less
