April 23 – 29 is National Volunteer Recognition Week
Did you know at any given time Lacey Fire District 3 has 20 – 40 volunteers? Their selfless contributions to the District and Community enrich the lives of countless others. While they are always appreciated, this is the week to celebrate their awesomeness!
Administrative volunteers provided over 3,000 hours of service to the District in 2016. We utilize administrative volunteers in reception, records management, finance and at events.
Incident Support Volunteers gave nearly 9,000 hours in 2016, 24 hours at a time to support the firefighters on emergency scenes and at extended events.
Bet you couldn’t tell that some of the firefighters responding to your call might be volunteers! Our volunteer FFs gave over 10,000 hours in 2016 working alongside the career FF staff. Volunteer FFs must meet the same entry and training standards as career firefighters and they provide a valuable resource for the District and the Community; the value of their service in 2016 was over $280,000.
Interested in Volunteering? Lacey Fire District is currently accepting applications for volunteer receptionists, ISU operators and volunteer firefighters. Call 491-2410 or come by Station 31 (1231 Franz St SE in Lacey) for more information.

- The caller is hearing/voice impaired
- A medical emergency that renders the person incapable of speech
- When speaking out loud would put the caller in danger, such as a home invasion, domestic violence situation or an active shooter scenario

Am I Having a Heart Attack?
First Signs of a Heart Attack may include…
- Chest pain or pressure that lasts for more than a few minutes
- Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms
- Jaw pain or toothache
- Lightheadedness, nausea, sweating, or shortness of breath
Not all of these signs occur in every attack. They may disappear and come back. If they return, call 9-1-1 immediately. The important thing is to act fast. Don’t wait!
Heart attack signs in women can be harder to detect. In addition to the typical symptoms listed above, some women may experience any of the following:
- cold, sweaty skin
- unexplained anxiety or nervousness
- weakness or overwhelming fatigue
- swelling in the lower legs or ankles
Because women tend to view heart attack as a man’s illness and don’t consider themselves to be at risk, many minimize their symptoms and place themselves at greater risk by delaying treatment. Again, the important thing is to act fast!
Be Prepared for Power Outages
Power outages can happen anytime of the year. Make sure you and your family knows the steps to take during a blackout. Above all, BE PREPARED. Pleave view the FEMA video below.
