Location And Time Change For Lacey Fire Commissioners Board Meeting

The Board of Fire Commissioners of Lacey Fire District 3 will conduct their regular meeting at Station 34 on October 16th beginning at 6:30 PM. Station 34 is located at 8407 Steilacoom Rd SE. The meeting will coincide with an open house and Breast Cancer Awareness event at that station.
Lacey Fire District 3 is hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness event with an all-female crew at Station 34 on October 16th. While it is not unusual for women to be part of a crew at Lacey Fire District 3 – 12% of the District’s emergency responders are female - the women are spread amongst the three shifts. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness, on Thursday October 16th all crews from Station 34 will be comprised of the Districts’ career and volunteer women paramedics and firefighters.
In conjunction with the Commissioners meeting and Breast Cancer Awareness, the District is sponsoring an Open House at Station 34 from 5 – 7 p.m. Come join us for a swearing-in ceremony for new volunteer firefighters, take a look at the improvements made to the station over the last two years, and meet your Lacey firefighters.
