Briceland Fire will be at the Briceland Farmer’s Market

Thursdays in September, 2-6 pm, for a good ol-fashioned bake-sale to fund the fire department.

We’ll have our new selection of Briceland VFD T-shirts and Hoodies!

and will be taking orders for engraved Bricks for the new fire station. 

We were disappointed to have to cancel our annual fundraiser BBQ, but we still have a fire station to build and have a great new selection of hoodies and T-shirts that you can take home with you. 

Please drop-by and support the fire department!

Briceland Fire’s September 11 BBQ Fundraiser Cancelled

Regrettably, Briceland VFD is cancelling this year’s fundraiser BBQ due to the ongoing concerns and increased prevalence of Covid-19 in our community.  However, as we are, at this time, in the middle of our long-awaited and expensive undertaking of fire station construction, we are in greater need than ever of having a successful and enjoyable fundraising event.  So please stay tuned as we look for creative, alternate ways to fundraise.  We still have hopes of a champagne and hors d’oeuvres event December 4 with station tours or possibly virtual tours.  If you are able to make a donation, or additional donation, at this time, it would greatly help us maintain the crew and continue with construction.  Donations can be made on our website, by mail, or by deposit at Vocality Community Credit Union.  Orders for engraved bricks can be placed on our website (although the special 12×12 bricks can only be placed through the Department directly… we can send you the form).  We will soon have fresh hoodies and T-shirts available on the website as well.  Call (or email) the station and leave your address if you didn’t get our recent newsletter or would like a brick order form mailed to you.  Thank you to everyone and all the local businesses who have given support.  We appreciate you very much!

Aurora Studebaker is Briceland VFD’s new Fire Chief

At our May 18 Annual General Membership Meeting, Chief Jim Fulton stepped down and Aurora Studebaker was voted in as the next Briceland Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief. Jim served as Chief from 1981-1999 and stepped up again from 2015-2021 after the sudden passing of Chief Tim Olsen. We are all grateful for Chief Fulton’s many years of service, leadership, and enduring dedication to the fire department and community. Jim will continue to assist the Department with duty officer coverage and other duties as needed. Aurora has been with BVFD for 15 years and moves up from Operations’ Chief to Fire Chief. Briceland VFD is fortunate to have the fire crew and community supporters that keep us strong. Thank you everyone who attended.

Tao Ryce, Briceland Fire Apparatus Engineer

It is with a heavy heart that we share the loss of fire apparatus engineer Tao Ryce. Tao passed away, suddenly, on March 23rd, 2021. Tao was a dedicated member of the fire department as well as an amazing father, husband, friend and community member. He lived his life with great intention and focus and truly embodied his name. Tao (in Chinese philosophy) the absolute principle underlying the universe, combining within itself the principles of yin and yang and signifying the way, or code of behavior, that is in harmony with the natural order. The Southern Humboldt community is hit hard by this loss and will miss Tao so much! Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts as we navigate through this difficult time.
