KIDS FF CHALLENGE: One of the common questions firefighters are asked is "how hard is working in all that gear?" LT. Desmith and his crew from Station 17 are teaming up with local middle school PE classes to give the kids a taste of the physical activities firefighters perform. The crew has come up with a modified version of the "Firefighter Combat Challenge" that each kid will have an opportunity to run through! The Station 17 crew will be visiting multiple schools throughout the remainder of the school year to help promote physical fitness and give kids a taste of what it's like to be a firefighter.
A Note From The Chief
Public Outreach is a big part of our service delivery to the community and 2015 was no different. The Fairwood Station was very busy making personal contact with the citizens by providing the following :
Public Outreach is just one example of how Renton Fire & Emergency Services is committed to its vision of working to make our community safer, healthier and stronger.
Sincerely, Chief Mark Peterson
