We would like to announce the in-service date and time for YOUR new fire engine! This is the third and final of the new voter-approved engines and this one will be housed at the Sudden Valley fire station.

The community is invited to join South Whatcom Fire Authority and the Firefighters' Association for the "wetting-down" ceremony.

When: April 12th, 2018 at 5:30 PM
Where: 2050 Lake Whatcom Blvd. (Station 22/Sudden Valley)

There will be a short presentation by the Chief, the traditional wetting-down of the new engine, and then community members and firefighters together will push the engine into the station where it will then officially go into service (also a fire service tradition)! There will be a group photo of all who attend in front of the engine that will hang inside Station 22.

After the ceremony, we will be having hot dogs and cake for you to enjoy!

We hope to see all of you there!
