South Hutchinson Kansas Fire School


   In the fire service we are called to a multitude of different emergencies. When teaching I often say, “you never know what you will find so plan for anything!” One of the things we occasionally respond to is the unintentional release of materials.

On Wednesday, June 22, Lake Mills Volunteer Fire Department hosted a
practice/training burn on a house in Lake Mills. Along with Lake Mills
firefighters, firefighters from Emmons, MN, Forest City, and Scarville
joined in the training.

Beresford firefighters extinguish a grass fire at the mm 55 on I-29. It may look green around the area but it is still very dry. Until we receive suitable rain the fire danger in our area remains high. This fire most likely started from a discarded lit cigarette. Submitted by Chief Tarz Mullinix.

The Hinckley Fire Department, in conjunction with Pine Technical and Community College, conducted a training burn on Saturday, June 11. Fire departments from Pine County, Mora and Rush City were invited to participate as well. Photos by Erv Kleinschmidt and Kim Felton.

Plenty of training

   First and foremost, I wish to pass my condolences along to the families, friends, and department members of Chancellor Fire Chief Jeb Ford, and, Lake County Deputy Braxton Hofman.

Fairbury responds

   Fairbury Rural Fire responded to a house fire on Jan. 1 with Jansen Fire providing mutual aid. Heavy smoke and strong winds reduced visibility, and snow and ice made it slick.

Time flies

   As the old saying goes “time sure flies by when you’re having fun!!”. That’s how I have been feeling with my position as your Secretary Treasurer of this Great Association!
