On July 31 WCFD4 / North Whatcom was invited to participate in a block party held at North Lake Community Church, 1471 McLeod Rd, Bellingham. The church hosted an event featuring a classic car show, live music, face painting and a bouncy house for the kids and lots of free hot dogs, snow cones and popcorn.
The Station 12 on duty crew of Joe Noonchester, Jeff Schwab and Micah McConkey along with off-duty help from Troy Freeman, Darren Bruya, Larry Johnston and Doug Clark provided fire safety education with the Fire Safety House and tested the skills of future firefighters as they battled mock smoke and flames with a booster line from Brush 12.
All in all it was a positive community event and we were able to make many new friends as we invited people to the August 17 Pancake Breakfast. We’ve already been invited back for next year and are looking forward to seeing many more North Whatcom / Fire 4 faces there!
