Welcome to Lacey Fire District 3

RTB HamstersOn Friday, September 26th Lacey Firefighters responded to a fire call in a mobile home.  Reports indicated a working fire, with black smoke coming from several windows.  Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, and the homeowner confirmed all humans were safely out, but that the family hamsters were still inside.

LFD3 tweeted the activity after the call, and the story was picked up worldwide, with congratulations coming from all over the nation and Europe.  You can watch the story as carried on ABC news blog through the link below, and can sign up to follow us on Twitter at    https://twitter.com/LaceyFireDist3

The Fire District recently completed its annual audit of the 2013 financials AND the first-ever Federal audit for grant compliance.  The Federal audit was required due to the value of the two SAFER Grants the District received to fund volunteer and career staffing.

We are excited to report that both audits came back very clean and the auditors reported that the District’s accounting and financial practices were some of the best they’ve seen among Fire Districts statewide.  The official report is provided below.
