IAFF 3726 Involved in our community

By Walt Kesteloot, Public Affairs Chairman

The East Fork Professional Firefighter’s Association, IAFF Local No. 3726, is composed of the men and women who are the career firefighters and paramedics that respond to calls for service each day in the East Fork Fire District. They are highly visible, and occasionally very loud, as the red and white fire engines and rescue units respond throughout the Carson Valley, Topaz, and eastern Alpine County to answer your emergency calls.

However, your firefighters are just as active, quietly, in the community behind the scenes. The East Fork Professional Firefighter’s Association (EFPFA) has adopted several local and national causes for which the firefighters actively participate and/or raise money to support. Members donate their time to programs for children with Muscular Dystrophy, Autism, in addition to coaching local children’s sporting teams. Each year food and cash donations are made to our local food bank.

IAFF Local No. 3726, participates in the Carson Valley Days and Candydance events. The fund raising drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is our most visible event with the IAFF’s National “Fill the Boot” campaign. Yet, each October our members wear Pink uniform shirts and raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. Our award winning firefighter stair-climb team, “Bellona’s Breathers,” competes each year in Reno and Seattle, to raise money for the American Lung Association. November brings awareness for men’s cancer issues with my wife’s least favorite event, “Mo-vember,” where moustaches are the theme.

Our firefighters are also members of local committees, organizations, fraternities, and churches, in which their time is spent in service building a better tomorrow – giving back as grateful members of a community that recognizes and wholeheartedly supports its’ firefighters. We thank the citizens of Douglas County for this honor to serve you each day both professionally and personally.

Dressed in full structure firefighting gear, firefighters from the East Fork Professional Firefighter’s Association, IAFF Local No. 3726, raced up 36 floors in the stairwell of the Silver Legacy Hotel Casino. Firefighters Nick Summers (6 minutes), Dave Norvell (6:23 minutes), and Mike Hackler (6:27 minutes) were the fastest firefighters and East Fork swept first, second, and third places.
