Today, the City of Elko Aircraft Rescue Firefighters (ARFF) conducted their annual live burns at the Elko Regional Airport. This is an annual FAA requirement that must be met to keep air service to Elko and ensure that our responders are ready and proficient in complex incidents with aircraft crashes and fires. The training today included simulated fuel fires, engine fires and fuselage fires that our firefighters had to combat with handlines and the ARFF crash vehicles. In addition, the City of Elko Fire Department would like to thank Western States Propane for their generous donation of propane, truck and personnel to ensure that this training was a success.

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of one of our Firefighters, Jerid Vance. Jerid began with our volunteer staff in 2011. His personality could light up a room. He truly embodied what it takes to be a member of this department. His positive attitude and willingness to help others are a few of the things that made him a great person, friend, and firefighter. Jerid was chosen as “Volunteer Firefighter of the Year 2019”. Please keep Amanda, and their two children Elijah and Noelle in your thoughts during this time.

This year, on March 14, states throughout the U.S. will be turning their clocks forward*. Many people will use this opportunity to change their home’s smoke alarm batteries as well.

Because working smoke alarms are a critical element of home fire safety, NFPA supports any and all efforts to reinforce the importance of working batteries. However, today’s smoke alarms are not all designed the same, making battery messaging more nuanced.

Following is information to help make sure all smoke alarms have working batteries, accounting for the multiple types of smoke alarms on the market and their varying battery requirements:

Smoke alarms with non-replaceable 10-year batteries are designed to remain effective for up to 10 years. If the alarm chirps, warning that the battery is low, replace the entire smoke alarm right away.
Smoke alarms with any other type of battery need a new battery at least once a year. If that alarm chirps, warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.
When replacing a battery, follow manufacturer’s list of batteries on the back of the alarm or manufacturer’s instructions. Manufacturer’s instructions are specific to the batteries (brand and model) that must be used. The smoke alarm may not work properly if a different kind of battery is used.

Elko County Covid-19 Response

EDIT: Those who are interested in receiving the vaccine may complete the Elko County COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form through this link - https://hipaa.jotform.com/210126135088044. As vaccine clinics are planned, we will share registration and other relevant information as it becomes available.

Earlier this week the State announced a new COVID-19 vaccine administration prioritization strategy that moved from the previous tier system to the two lane system you see below, allowing more flexibility in administering the vaccine.

After announcing this new change, Elko County received approval to move to Tier 2 on Tuesday. We are currently in the process of planning vaccine events over the next few weeks. More to come on the events tomorrow, along with a survey to help us get an accurate count of those interested in receiving the vaccine and to plan future events.

We have partnered with Nevada Health Centers and the Elko Senior Center to provide vaccine to those aged 70 and older. Those who meet this criteria and are interested in receiving the vaccine are encouraged to contact the Senior Center at (775) 738-3030 to pre-register. As of today, more than 400 pre-registrations have been received. Should we not be able to vaccinate all those who pre-register, we will work on additional events to ensure all who want to be vaccinated, can be.
