It is with great sadness; the Valparaiso Police Department announces the loss of Sergeant Steve Kobitz. Sergeant Kobitz end of watch came May 25, 2020, as the result of what is believed to be unknown medical conditions, while serving our community. Sgt. Kobitz began his career in February 1992, honorably serving the City of Valparaiso for over 28 years. Our condolences are extended to his family, friends, and fellow officers. You will be missed.

Be careful, numerous trees and lines down throughout south county.

PSA: Please refrain from going out and β€œexploring”! Several trees down across roadways and flooded streets across Porter County. First Responders and Highway Workers are working as quickly and safely as possible to clean up and get to emergencies! Also don’t call 911 for non emergencies aka down trees and flooded roads etc. Our dispatchers are working their butts off to get First Responders to true emergencies!

We have a had a great time doing the birthday parades these past weeks, and helping make birthdays more enjoyable during this crazy time.

With the state opening back up, and people starting to go back to work, the members of the fire department are becoming more busy as well.

With that, starting June 1st we will not be doing any more birthday parades. We are getting to the point where we will not be able to fulfill everyone’s request. Thank you for understanding and supporting our Department!

Stay Safe! πŸ”₯ πŸš’ πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’

The Morgan Township Fire Department understands that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, children are unable to have their friends and family over for birthday parties for health and safety reasons. We would like to try to do our part to help make birthdays special for Morgan Township children in the meantime.

If you would like to request that a fire truck drive past your residence and wish your child a happy birthday on or near their birthday, please send us a private message on Facebook or call Lt. Josh Wittmer at 219-309-938seven. We will need your child’s birthday, your child's name, their age, your name, address, and contact number. If your child has special needs or a disability which is not conducive to sirens, please advise us as well. Our firefighters will then attempt to drive by and wish your child a happy birthday from inside our fire trucks, following the social distancing guidelines. Please note that our visit is subject to change depending on call volume and firefighter availability. This program is available to Morgan township residents who have children in fifth grade or younger, with a birthday that falls during the COVID-19 social distancing period. We hope that this will help make this time pass a little easier!! πŸš’ πŸ”₯ πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’ πŸ’§ πŸŽ‚ 🎁

Absolute great training as always at Boone Grove Fire!

β€œThe more you sweat on the training ground, the less you bleed on the fire ground”

Last night BGFD hosted our 8th South County Training. This multi-department training invite included approximately 40 firefighters from Kouts, Morgan Township, Hebron, Lacrosse, Union Township, and Lakes of the Four Seasons Fire Departments. Areas of training included Forcible Entry, Rescue 42 Stabilization Tactics, Winching and Rigging, Grain Bin Rescue and Making a Window a Door (Increasing the opening for rescues).

Special thanks to all the instructors who have put in countless hours preparing for this event. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to put the best product out there to train others and we truly appreciate the firefighters who take the time out of their busy lives to come train and learn from us. We also couldn’t do what we do without the continued support of Sandberg's Towing & Recovery, Metro Auto Recyclers Inc., Southlake body Auto Repair 24-hour towing of Hebron, Thatcher Foundations Inc., Co-Alliance LLP and C&M Training LLC.

Lastly thank you to Pastor Jay Birky for coming each year and giving our opening prayer, our photographer Sara Rice (wife of BG Firefighter David Rice and owner of Essential Photography **check out her page**) , and veteran firefighter Wally Macchiarella for coming to support the training program.

When is the pork chop pick up date? I didn't write it on my calendar, and I forget... (Hey, I'm old)
Hello Facebook Friends, About a month ago I met Dylan and I want to share his story with you all. Seven years ago at the age of 16 he was hit by a car while driving his moped. This terrible accident left him a C2 quadriplegic and changed his life forever. As I spent time with him I learned that his greatest passion since he was a little boy was to be a firefighter. He has started collecting patches from various fire departments and I thought it would be a great idea if we sent him patches from ALL over. Every fire depatment in each town has a different patch! Normally fire departments give these out for freeβ€”especially if you tell them Dylan’s story. Considering what he has been through he has kept an extremely positive attitude and has never given up hope! So I need your help! Please Share Dylans story and show him how much he is loved! If you have a local fire department, I encourage you to collect and send Dylan a patch or two :) Receiving these patches will make his day! Thanks so much!! Please mail patches to: Dylan Ferguson 9211 N. 650 E. Monticello, IN 47960
