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…

Sadly, we will no longer be having our fireworks sale this year as we have done for so many years in the past. We greatly appreciate your constant support and we look forward to seeing you at another fundraising event later on this year that our firefighters are eager to put together. It is just far too much to ask of our staff of 100% volunteers to organize around the same time of year as organizing the successful staffing of Stampede all while running nearly double our yearly call volume so far this year. We look forward to planning another fundraiser for the Blue Township Fireman's Fund later on this year. Any suggestions for community fundraisers are welcomed! Please, as always, light fireworks in a safe and responsible manner, away from homes and heavy brush, while keeping a more than safe distance away. Thank you again! ...

Crews ran a call last Sunday (6/12) for a report of a small wildfire along Excel Rd, south of Hwy 24 along the railroad tracks. Thankfully this fire was quickly contained and extinguished. This fire ran through GREEN grass and vegetation. Don't be fooled by the green! Given the current weather conditions, it is drying out! Be aware of your surroundings and exposures when lighting an outside fire this summer. Thanks Kansas Interagency Wildfire Council for sharing! ...

It may be June, grass may be green, but wildfires still possible. With prolonged heat previous few weeks and dry conditions, fuels are starting to become more susceptible to fire. Blue Township Fire Department had a small wildfire on Sunday that burned efficiently/actively through green grass! Be aware as warmth and dryness continue for increasing fire danger!
