Today Brothers and Sisters from around the nation are in Seattle to Climb For The Cure. Keep them in your thoughts today, they have trained long and hard for this. They have sacrificed their free time and time with their families to stand for something that often hits too close to home for every Firefighter.
I especially want to send thoughts to Brothers Tyler Wise and Travis Falter who are representing our department.

Go get 'em Brothers!

Remembering our fallen Brother.

Brother Kurt Aikele passed 5 years ago on December 10th 2012. Kurt fought a long battle with lung cancer and is the reason I took my position with the Firefighter Cancer Support Network and why I am so passionate about firefighter cancer safety. Kurt is still talked about fondly around the station and left an impression that will last forever.
Keep him and his loved ones in your heart in this hard time.

Are you and your family members of the Closed Door Club?
A lightweight bedroom door tgat is closed while sleeping could mean the difference between a tragic outcome and successful escape!

As a firefighter, you know that closing doors is a key tactic to isolate the flow of fire. Help share the benefit of that tactic with your community by encouraging families to close their doors as a preventative action against fire in their homes. The "Close Before You Doze" campaign aims to make cl...

Blackfoot Fire Department personnel work on putting out a fire in a dryer, foreground, at Martha’s Place restaurant on Main Street Tuesday evening. The machine evidently caught fire in its lint trap and the washroom in which it sat was damaged with smoke and water and the venue may remain closed for several days. According to BFD Lt. David Lewis, the call came in at 6:02 p.m., nine firefighters/paramedics responded and there were no injuries. Photos by Greg Eichelberger

We want to give a big shoutout to BreAnn Wise for joining us and being a huge part of the team. She hauled our bottles up and changed them for us in the halfway point of the climb. The bottle changing floor is a fast paced bottle exchange and she handled the pressure like a pro. We wouldn't have made it happen without you, THANK YOU!

A longtime Blackfoot firefighter was honored Saturday for giving his life in the line of duty.

Kurt Aikele died of lung cancer just days after he officially retired from the Blackfoot Fire Department in December of 2012. Tony Catt, a firefighter who worked with Kurt, said the former captain didn’t smoke and didn’t have anything else in his background that could have contributed to the disease.

“Nothing outside of his work was a risk factor,” Catt said.

Kurt’s wife, Denise Aikele, agrees.

“The doctor said nothing could have brought that on (except for) contact with toxins,” she said.

That’s why the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) agreed that Kurt died as a result of his duties, and honored him during the 2014 IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Service in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Saturday.

Everyone asked why we did not have the spider out this year, and now the morning news is asking also. If anyone has something they would like to (respectfully) say, go to the original post from the morning news and share your opinion.

The Blackfoot Fire Department was told not to do the spider prank during the fair this year. What are your thoughts on this?
