All three shifts got some new faces this past month, the three Battalion Chiefs moved shifts on August 1st.  Now a shift change at the bottom level may not bring any change to the dynamics of the shift, but a change at the BC level can cause significant alterations.  One Battalion Chief may prefer things to be done a certain way and it may be different from the other two.  So there is definitely a feeling out period and it may take a while to settle into a groove.  But with that being said, it has been a month and all three shifts are still running quite smoothly. 

A recent opening at the Fire Department has now been filled, please help us welcome Jared Sauer our organization.  Jared previously worked for the Forrest Service, fighting wildland fires for 8 years.  His experience there will help him in his new position with the city.  Jared grew up in Jerome, where he currently resides with his wife Sarah and son Weston.  Firefighter Sauer has completed his initial training program and worked his first shift on August 29th.  He is assigned to C shift for the time being and Jared looks forward to a long and successful career with the city.

August also brought the annual MDA Fill the Boot fundraiser.  The generous citizens of our city helped the Twin Falls Fire Fighters Association raise nearly $12,000.  A big thanks to all who donated to this worthwhile cause.  In case you were wondering, all money raised stays here in the Magic Valley.  We may have held up some people but it was for a good cause and the donations are very appreciated by the families who receive them.  If you missed us this time, we’ll be back out there again next year.

Well, that’s about it for this month, until next time, don't forget to wave to the boys in the BRT.
