The Firefighters, Officers, and Women’s Auxiliary would like to thank everyone who came to visit the Fire Station for our Annual Open House. Your continued support and financial donations enable us to provide firefighting services to the City of Indian Harbour Beach. If you missed us this year stop by and visit us anytime. We will see you all again next year.
On July 21st, a crew of 4 firefighters took Truck 56 to Kindercare of IHB for their open house. The kids were allowed to climb through the truck and try on the firefighters’ gear. The kids and employees had a blast!
Firefighters from the IHBVFD helped kids at summer camp enjoy water day. Two hose lines were set up for the kids to try and fill a 50 gallon trash can with water. The aerial master stream was set up in a water curtain for the kids to run through. Finally we set up two 16′x20′ tarps end to end for a 30′ slip and slide under the aerial master stream. It became evident early on that the camp counselors (yellow shirts) were having as good a time or better than the kids.
IHB Firefighters recently completed State Certification in Aerial Operations, Hydraulics and Pump Operations. They are now eligible to sit for the State Exam as State Certified Driver Engineers.
On June 29, 2012, the Indian Harbour Beach Volunteer Fire Department was requested to protect the Eau Gallie Yact Club as they launched fireworks. The great show was about 15 minutes in length. The firefighters of the IHBVFD would like the thank the Eau Gallie Yact Club for the show. Here are some of the pictures and a few videos of the show:
Three IHBVFD members visited the traveling Memorial Rescue Truck 4 at BCFR Station 48. This partially restored Rescue 4 Truck by “The Remembrance Rescue Project” continues to remind us of the sacrifices made by the “343″ FDNY Firefighters on September 11, 2001. The Memorial is touring the East Coast visiting various Fire Stations who agree to assist with the project by hosting the Rescue Truck. To see and stand in Rescue 4 knowing it transported these men to their final call was an emotional experience. A plaque on the Rescue says, “9 FIREFIGHTERS FROM RESCUE CO 4 LOST THEIR LIVES TRYING TO SAVE OTHERS. EVEN WITH THE LOSS OF THEIR CREW THEIR TRUCK WENT BACK IN SERVICE AND KEPT PROTECTING NYC UNTIL 2010.
We all need to heed the saying on the side of the truck, “We Will Not Forget 9-11-01, W.TC.”. Visit www.TheRRP.org for more information on The Remembrance Rescue Project.
