Traditionally Labor Day has been the official end to the Summer season. I hope that everyone has had a fun time and was able to take that family vacation somewhere or enjoy the great outdoors on one of our many lakes and waterways. As schools start back in session let’s remember to allow for a little extra time for our travels as we will be encountering school buses and students walking to school. As many of you know I again had the privilege of working at the Missouri State Fair Fire Department this year as the captain of EMS, we saw a total of 156 calls for service, and 132 patrons of the fair walk in to our First Aid Station. I would like to extend a huge thank you to all who worked at the fair this year for the hard work and dedication to not only this organization but to the patrons of the fair. I would like to also say a great big thank you to Joyce Thompson, Angie Fields, Charlie Peel, Ann Jones, and all the other wonderful people who helped with the cooking and meal preparing to make sure we were well fed and did not leave hungry.
On September 8, 2018, the second annual Missouri State Fire Marshal 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb took place in Jefferson City. I want to say thank you to everyone who climbed in remembrance of the 343 brothers who paid the ultimate sacrifice that day, proceeds from this event went to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
On September 11, Knob Noster Fire Department held their annual ceremony in remembrance of 9/11 at the City Hall.
