Business of the Month
SELKIRK FIRE RESCUE & EMS NAMED SANDPOINT CHAMBER’S BUSINESS OF THE MONTH
SANDPOINT – It should come as no surprise; our firefighters have earned some major kudos in the last couple of months. They work tirelessly, in the worst of conditions to keep our community safe. They can not simply call in sick or hit the snooze button. When an emergency strikes, there are no excuses, and they must be on. Please join The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce in congratulating the Selkirk Fire Rescue & EMS as the March Business of the Month.
The mission of the Selkirk Fire District is to Preserve Life, Property and the Environment through Dedication, Preparedness and Quality Customer Service. The Selkirk Fire District wants to provide the public with the best service possible.
They proudly serve Bottle Bay, Careywood, Cocolalla, Dover, Garfield Bay, Laclede, Sagle, Sandpoint, Westmond, Willow Bay, and Wrenco. Chief Ron Stocking informed Chamber Members at last weeks luncheon of some exciting new developments for Selkirk Fire. As of January 12th, they have started staffing the Careywood Fire Station 24 hours a day/seven days a week. They are hoping to do the same at Wrenco with the support of the area voters. They were also able to lower the fire insurance rating for Sandpoint which could result in lower insurance premiums for our businesses and commercial properties.
With the devasting fire on 1st Avenue last month, the firefighters were met with extreme conditions. Chief Stocking reported at the height of the fire there were 40 firefighters on the scene. 5 Chiefs, 12 Engines, 2 Trucks, two rescues, BCEMS, SPD and BCSO all responded. Almost every Bonner County Fire Agency Assisted.
We are grateful to their continued support and service to our community and the surrounding area. Please join us in thanking Selkirk Fire Rescue & EMS. They are the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce March Business of the Month. For more information about Selkirk Fire find them on Facebook or on their website at www.selkirkfire.com.
Chamber Board Vice Chair & Ambassador Bob Witte presents Chief Ron Stocking and Assistant Chief Dale Hopkins of Selkirk Fire Rescue & EMS with the Business of the Month Honor at the General Membership Luncheon on March 14th.
