With spring hopefully here to stay many people are burning ditches, CRP, and brush piles. Here are a few important tips to making sure you do that properly, and safely!
☎️ Always call the dispatch center first and advise them of the controlled burn.

➡️ Plan your burn based on humidity, wind direction/ speed, AND future weather.

❌ Never burn large areas without assistance.

🔥 Fire moves quickly and conditions can deteriorate rapidly.

🚒 Don’t be afraid to call 911 if you fear the fire is becoming too large.

My Name is John Dolog my son Paul Dolog, was a proud member of the Baxter Vfd, he joined when he was 15 years old as a Junior Firefighter. He was a senior at Fairmont Senior High School and Marion Co. Vo-Tech center. He was looking forward to graduation and beginning his life's journey which included A life of public service as a Firefighter. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma on April 04, 2014 two days before his 19th birthday. The cancer was detected in his lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys and bones. Paul started aggressive chemotherapy on April 5, during the second round of chemo he began experiencing severe breathing difficulties and could not continue the treatments. On April 9th, Paul underwent open chest surgery to remove a softball size tumor from his lung. Paul never regained consciousness and passed away on April 20th 2014. I am disabled and my wife Linda was working only part time, therefore we had no life insurance for Paul. The Baxter VFD has held a dinner and boot drive to held us pay for his final expenses, but we need help. I would like to issue a request for every firefighter in the state to donate $1.00 or whatever you can spare. Please send donations to Baxter VFD Paul Dolog Funeral Fund, 2741 Paw Paw Creek Rd. Baxter WV 26560. God bless all Firefighters !! Thank You

This may be for Mitchell County but we strongly recommend not burning until we get some moisture! It’s not worth the risk. Also, farmers that are in the fields remember to get out and check your equipment often for anything that make get hot and catch a field on fire! Stay safe everyone!


We are looking for people interested in taking the EMT class. Anyone interested is asked to contact Ben Walk with St. Ansgar Rescue




Wednesday, March 25th | 7:00 PM CST

The doors are down, all is quiet but we do stand ready. On Wednesday, March 25, at 7:00 pm ALL IOWA FIRE DEPARTMENTS are encouraged to open their doors and turn on the lights on their trucks as a sign of strength and hope for all. Hope for all who work daily in EMS, Fire and Law enforcement to be ready, strength for those working around the clock to provide care, those who strive to find the right medicine to help, those in the food/grocery industry to feed us and those trucking daily to keep us going.

You can do your part at home, too! Turn your porch light on...💡Let us all know you’re fine and have hope. We ask all with red, blue, white or your department colors...Light ‘em up and turn them on. Maybe just maybe, we’ll create five minutes of smiles and peace.

Please share and let's see if we can go Nationwide. We will be live at 7:00 PM TONIGHT!! 🚨🚨🚨


For those that are going to back asking if there’s a call tonight, there is not. Just out here to support you in your time of need! We’re always ready!


This could save a life! Stay safe everyone!

2 a.m. and you’re sound asleep. You’re kids are down the hallway and you remembered to shut their door after you tucked them in. You shut your door too. You can’t hear them, but you realize that what would you expect to hear at 2 a.m.? Their room is safe. They can’t fall far off their beds. Their floor is padded carpet. They’ll be ok. You told yourself it’s ok that their door and yours is closed. If they need you, they can come to you. It’s a good thing you listened. 2:02 a.m. and the next thing you know you’re wide awake hearing the smoke alarm going off. Fear freezes you, and you think straight to getting to your children. You bolt for the door and as soon as you open it, heavy, hot smoke pours in and forces you to close it. You can’t go that way. You call 911. You’re able to get out the window. You meet the firefighters in the front yard when they arrive. You tell them your children are in that front window in their bedroom. You did your part and shut the door. The firefighters did their part too. They trained for this exact scenario. They get to work and throw the ladder and get inside that window. No smoke pours out of the window as they go in because the door inside was closed. The next thing you see is your kids being handed to the firefighter on the ladder. They’re crying, but their safe. No burns. No cuts or bruises. They’re perfectly safe. After the fire is out, the Captain shows you through the house and praises you for shutting the door. You see firsthand the outside of the door that stopped all the heat and smoke from hurting your children and you. It’s black and scarred. The inside is almost perfectly white. Almost no smoke got inside. You did your part and closed before you dozed. You gave us, the fire department time, and we did our part. We kept a family together tonight instead of having to tell a mother her children are dead, or a child that mommy won’t be coming back. Good for you. Now spread the word to everyone else. Let’s give every family this chance.

On this day every year, we remember the sacrifice 3 local flight crew members made on their last flight. Gene, Russ, and Shell were not only people we handed patient's off to, they were our friends.

How to prevent your Christmas tree from catching fire

Please if you have a real tree this year, keep it watered


Keep this in mind this harvest season and let’s get everyone home safe and sound!

Following the combines to a different field tonight my heart was filled with joy. I watched our caravan head down the road trying to beat the rain. I couldn't even get them to stop for supper until they had gotten everything moved. I obliged and turned on my flashers to pull up the rear behind the combines.

The field we needed to go to required highway travel. I always dread this, and it didn't take me long to remember why.

Cars weaved in and out of lanes, slammed on breaks, and recklessly passed. I gripped the wheel and said a prayer for our crew. Including my husband and 6 year old in one of the combines.

I get it, I really do. You want to get home for supper or you have somewhere you need to be in a hurry. I understand your frustration and I know we're slowing you down.

But these guys are trying their hardest to get out of your way. They don't enjoy slowing you down, they're just trying to get the job done. That's someone's family, including mine that I watch you narrowly miss hitting. I cringe as I watch cars fly up behind me and slam on their brakes only at the last minute. I look at my babies in the backseat and say a prayer of protection over us.

Please this harvest season just give us a little bit of grace. And even if you're frustrated we're making your trip a little longer than you planned, please refrain from the honks, dirty looks, and even the middle finger. We're trying to do our jobs, and we just ask for a little bit of mercy.

Keep this in mind as we get into the busy planting season! A few extra seconds to follow slow and wait for a chance to pass can save your life. We all have jobs to do and the farmers are about to start theirs for the year!
