Fire Station Parking

We got an email from the WFPA:

Residents of the Community,

We are experiencing an increase in vehicles being parked at the Fire Station without prior approval. The space there is for WFPA use only. In the event emergencies these vehicles hinder operations.

Our Fire Station is an extremely important asset to the community. […]

Fire and Power Outage – Power Line Broke at 4:05am

We lost power to our cabin at 4:05am this morning.

Our generator kicked on and we went back to bed, unaware that our Walker Fire Department was out in the cold and snow, at 4:00am, putting out this electrical fire.

APS restored power at about 9:30am.

Walker Fire posted these photos to their FaceBook page.

Emil From Roger, Walker Fire Department Chief

As everyone probably knows we have had an usually warm and dry winter which
creates visibility for an early start to a very long fire season. There
have already been fires in the southern part of the state. Roughly 90% of
fires are human caused whether that is intentionally or unintentionally
which means that our safety relies extensively on […]

Goodwin Fire Update – Walker Fire Dept. July2, 7:30pm

https://www.facebook.com/walkerfiredept/posts/1683650698312453

The updates have slowed down because the fire has slowed down.

Having just heard from the Incident Management Team liaison, today went very well.

There was a lot of white smoke (that is usually the good kind) this afternoon visible from Walker today that dissipated some, but not completely, as the afternoon wore […]

Walker Fire Dept – Goodwin Fire Update July 1, 11:30

Generally positive, but they will be more smoke today from the back burns, which is actually a good thing.

News from today’s briefing; expect smoke this afternoon from burning operations which hopefully helps fortify the fireline.

This not over but they believe we are winding down. Let’s hope that is correct.
