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.
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:
The IHBVFD participated in this year’s Big Truck Day, a Beachside Community event held annualy at the Satellite Beach community center on March 31st. “Big Trucks” from various commercial agencies were there to showcase their equipment. Our 75 FOOT LADDER TRUCK attended and was a big hit with kids and adults alike.
The Walk n Wag event was held at Gleason Park to support cancer research. Teams of dogs and their owners were invited to attend. IHBVFD had a team of 3 dogs and 6 firefighters (including the Chief) and 1 auxiliary member.
Santa arrived in the City riding on Pumper 56 accompanied by Ms. Claus and his 4 Elves from IHBVFD. Though it was a very warm night the Christmas atmosphere was present. IHB Public Works Dept did another excellent job with the decorations and set up. The IHB Recreation Center Staff did their usual outstanding job with the event. Santa will be visiting all the neighborhoods in IHB beginning Monday December 12th. A map of the routes is available in Harbour Highlights.
