Buy a Brick! for the Construction of Briceland’s new Fire Station! These bricks will be proudly displayed in the construction and will be a permanent memorial of your support. They can be engraved with the name(s) or message of your choice.
Plans have been in the works for years to finally build a fire station in downtown Briceland, and we hope to be breaking ground this fall. Your donation now will be used to help us outfit the new building with what we need to make it a functioning pillar of our community’s emergency response team. Click the link above and order your brick!
Briceland Fire thanks you!
UPDATE: THERE WAS A GLITCH THAT WAS NOT ALLOWING 8X8 BRICKS TO BE ORDERED. THAT HAS BEEN REMEDIED. SO PLEASE TRY AGAIN!
During this public health emergency, the Briceland Volunteer Fire Department would like our community to know that we are here for you. If emergency services are needed, citizens are asked to inform the 911 dispatcher if they are experiencing, or have been exposed to anyone experiencing, flu-like or respiratory symptoms. Our crews will be responding with PPE masks and gloves and may ask that others present at emergency response calls, patients or anyone else assisting, also wear a mask, and that bystanders maintain a safe distance. We hope these practices do not cause alarm as they are meant to ensure that we all stay safe and that your emergency responders can continue to be there for you.
Thank you all for helping limit community spread. And as always, as fire season approaches, be fire safe.
Briceland Fire is honored to announce the election of Jim Fulton as the new Chief of our department. Congratulations Chief Fulton! We are honored by your dedication to service and proud to serve under your leadership!
The department and the entire community he served for so many years are in mourning at this sudden loss. More details will follow soon. For now, here is what County Supervisor Estelle Fennell had to say on BVFD’s Facebook page.
Thank you, Tim for all you did to follow your dream and make the BVFD one of the best little fire departments ever! We will miss your energy, your heart, your generosity of mind, body and spirit. Your memory will be with us forever and all who knew and loved you will carry the dream forward!
There will be a ceremonial flag raising and lowering at 1800 hours at the station today in his honor.
