In the 1960’s, most rural areas of Kansas had no organized fire protection, and Blue Township was no different.  One night in 1966, a fire broke out in the K-Hill Engine Service shop on east Highway 24. Owners John and Wilma Brooks got a call from neighbors that it was on fire, and began frantically making phone calls to get help.  There was no “911” in those days, so…

Last Thursday, our firefighters were invited to take part in Flint Hills Christian School's safety week! The elementary kids got to talk with Firefighter/EMT Hopkins about what our volunteers do for the community, what to do in the event of any given emergency, and of course ask lots of questions about our trucks and the Fire/EMS field. There were a few die hard future law enforcement officers in the group, but hey, you can't win them all :) ...

Crews were tested physically and mentally in training last night on our homemade training props. These props simulate a variety of things from rescuing a unconscious firefighter from a confined space and window(the Denver Drill) to maneuvering through tight spaces and even a simulated floor collapse. These props sharpen our firefighters skills in Rapid Intervention Team duties and staying calm in bad situations to clearly and effectively call a mayday for help. These situations are the worst of the worst but thankfully they are not a regular occurrence. Regardless, if these or similar situations occur, our firefighters are trained to stay calm under pressure, be adaptive, and get the job done. Don't practice until you succeed, practice until you cannot fail 👍 ...
