Hauser Lake Fire has received three grants from the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security, with the assistance of the Kootenai County Office of Emergency Management, totaling $17,000. The grants allowed us to purchase three additional radios and two expensive diagnostic devices.
It is particularly gratifying that we are able to receive these grants and provide better service to our residents and make our responders safer and more efficient. Funding for these grants comes from the Federal government so this is an example of our citizens’ tax dollars being put to use at home.
The Hauser Lake Volunteer Fire Department is proud to be celebrating 60 years of service to the community of Hauser, Idaho. More volunteers are always welcome.
In January of each year, at the HLVFD’s Annual Appreciation Banquet, the two individuals are honored for outstanding service, above and beyond even what is normal as a volunteer. One member of our department receives the honor of Firefighter of the Year.
Another individual receives what is called the D&D, or Dedication & Devotion Award. The D&D can be awarded to anyone associated with the Department, including Auxiliary members, Commissioners and so on.
The following individuals have been recognized as Firefighter of the Year (or Volunteer of the Year, as in 2001):
The Dedication and Devotion Award (D&D) was started in 2009 and has been awarded to the following members:
We are in need of a few good men and women who would like to become firefighters and help their community during emergencies. This can be a demanding position but one of the most rewarding. You will receive training in all aspects of firefighting and as an Emergency Medical First Responder or EMT. If you’re retired, we want you. If you’re a career person, we want you. If you’re a stay at home parent, we want you. If you live in the Hauser Lake area and would like to give back to your community, please contact us at the fire station (773-1174) or talk to any firefighter.
If you’re not interested in being a firefighter or EMT, the Hauser Lake Fire Auxiliary might be a great way for you to still help out and support the fire department. The fire auxiliary hosts our open house, helps with various projects around the station, and supports the firefighters during a fire by providing food and drinks to the firefighters. For more information, contact Lisa at 773-3067.
