Official Opening of the Tim Olsen Memorial Fire Station

With a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Tuesday afternoon, March 21st 2023, BVFD officially opened our new fire station. A small gathering of community members sheltered from the showers outside in the spacious garage with attendees including the family of former Briceland Chief Tim Olsen, former Chief Gerald Myers, the BVFD board, our current fire crew, and the builders and contractors who helped make this dream come true. The planning, financing and completion of this building was a monumental project that was decades in the making.

In the early summer Briceland Fire plans to celebrate with an open house for the public. There are still many details to be finished at our new station, but we are grateful to have the basic facilities ready for our crew and equipment as well as for hosting training events for first responders from all across Southern Humboldt county. If you would like to contribute to the final completion of the Tim Olsen Memorial Fire Station, please consider purchasing a brick for our patio with this “BricksRUs” link.
