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…

Yesterday, our department put on a vehicle stabilization/extrication course featuring our new Rescue 42 stabilization struts and jacks. We were able to place various vehicles and heavy objects (such as utility poles) in precarious and unique positions to simulate situations our crews may encounter that these tools would prove greatly beneficial to safely and successfully remove a victim from. Special thanks to St George Fire for allowing us to use their station and Ft Riley Fire for sending one of their Firefighters over with some extra stabilization struts to use for our large scale hands on practice. Departments represented included St. George Fire, Wamego Fire, Riley County/Ogden Fire, and Ft. Riley Fire. These rescue stabilization struts greatly increase our capabilities and are the only set in all of Pottawatomie County. We wanted to not only train our own members on their operation and use, but also some of our neighboring departments we could likely be responding to to assist in a large incident requiring their use. We look forward to hopefully more joint trainings in the future and being able to provide these rescue struts as a great asset to the safety of our community, our neighbors, and our Firefighters. ...
