What’s Happening Now
TOY’S FOR JOY & THE JERRY WOODS HOLIDAY ENGINE!
Puget Sound Fire & the Kent Firefighters Foundation are gearing up to help families in need throughout the communities that we serve in Covington, Kent, Maple Valley, SeaTac & King Co Fire Districts #37 & #44. Because of your toy donations to Toys for Joy, and food donations to the Jerry Wood’s Holiday Engine, we are able to provide food and toys to families in need. So many families struggle during the holidays and with your help we can spread holiday cheer.
All Puget Sound Fire stations are now accepting new, unwrapped toys. We also will continue our Toys for Joy gift wrapping events – this year the events will be held at the 84th Ave Business Center, located at 20811 84th Ave S. Kent, WA 98032, instead of Station 75. Reservation will be required and more information will be available soon.
You can donate directly to the Maple Valley Food Bank, as well as the Toys for Joy program using the above QR codes. All collected food and toys will be distributed to members in the communities that we serve.
The Jerry Woods Holiday Engine will be collecting food donations on each Friday and Saturday evening, December 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17. Please check back for additional information or visit their website at: https://holidayengine.org/
SHOW ME THE NUMBERS: Q3 2022 UNIT RESPONSE NUMBERS
How many fires did we respond to last quarter? What types of calls do we respond to the most? How busy is the fire station in my community? Below is a table to help you understand how many responses your neighborhood fire station is dispatched to, along with the call types: Fire, EMS, Hazardous Materials, Service, and Other.
The information below is RESPONSES not INCIDENTS. This table shows the amount of times individual fire unit(s) from each station respond to an incident, not the amount of incidents our department responds to. For example, a basic aid call will typically have a single fire department unit respond. This counts as one incident and one responding unit. In comparison, a house fire will have multiple units respond to the single fire incident. At each incident, there can be multiple units from different stations. This would register as ONE incident, but with MULTIPLE responses.
