CHIEFS CORNER

 

Well I was thinking the month of July the weather around here was going to straighten out but yet again I was wrong. We need to be very thankful we have not been hit by the very severe storms that have gone through our state to the north and south of us.

 

Reeseville Fire Department would like to congratulate Kylie Jarona on winning the Reeseville Fire Department’s queen contest and also thank her for representing us in the Fourth of July parade, the Dodge County Firefighters tournament parade and doing a great job competing at the county level queen competition. She represented us and met with many members of the communities at the Watertown Lights and Sirens event.

 

Driving around our village and surrounding areas that we provide fire protection to I would like to make the citizens all aware of the size of vehicles we drive and room needed to gain access. There are a lot of driveways within our area that we will physically not be able to gain access to put out your vehicle, structure, or home fire due to over grown trees, obstacles, narrow driveways, and no place to turn around our large trucks. We need to have at least twelve feet of height when measured from the driveway or roadway in order for us to gain access. As far as width goes nine feet wide of a solid surface to drive on but again twelve feet wide of air space to be able to get our trucks in there safely to help you in your time of need. The RFD will do everything we can to help but cutting down trees above or next to a driveway or moving obstacles out of the way just to gain access to the emergency at hand will cost dearly in the amount of damage sustained to the items or community members at risk of injury or death.  Every second counts. Help us help you by being prepared and doing a little preplanning to know that we will be able to get to you safely.

 

Village of Reeseville residents, I would like to remind you again that there is ABSOLUTLY NO OPEN BURNING within the Village of Reeseville. Please be considerate of all of your neighbors that are following the rules and want to be able to have their windows open and not have to smell your smoke or be in danger of your fire spreading. Furthermore, if anyone in the village observes this occurring please do not be afraid to call me at 920-210-2510 or Dodge County Non-Emergency Number (920)386-3726 or Dial 9-1-1 in case of emergency

 

Please remember to watch for flashing lights on all emergency vehicles, and remember to slow down and go around in a safe SLOW manor. They are there to keep everyone safe and alert of the situation ahead. Don’t become part of the emergency call. 

 

The fire department is offering FREE smoke alarms which also include installation to the residents within the Reeseville fire district. Call Fire Chief Nic Gay @ 920 210-2510 for more information, and to set up a good time to have yours installed! Call now because there is a limited supply available.

 

What kid would not love to have a fire truck at their birthday party! We are offering to bring a fire truck and some of our very own firefighters to your house for your kid’s party! All you have to do is contact Fire Chief Nic Gay at 920 210-2510.

 

If you are a motivated, dedicated, always willing to learn, not afraid of hard work, we have a job for you! If you have any of these qualities we are pleased to announce we are accepting applications at this time. Our Fire Department has a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members but we could really use YOUR help. Even if you don’t like car accidents or going into fire or you are afraid of heights, we have a job for you also. There are many tasks that it takes to keep a volunteer fire department successful and we would love to have you. For an application or even any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first, third or fourth Monday around 6:30 and just watch or observe.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

What a wonderful thing it is when we are able stop what we are doing and look around to see all of the blessings in our lives. When we choose to be thankful for our children, thankful for our homes, our mates, our jobs, even the ability just to walk, talk, and breathe. That may seem an obvious thing we do, but I have learned that there are many people that do not have these basic blessings in their lives and sometimes we ourselves take our blessings for granted.

What is an even greater revelation? Is when we learn Who is the One that has provided all that we are thankful for. The Bible, once again shares with us a great Truth. James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. This even goes so far as to tell us that it is through Him that we are able to live, to do what we do, and to be who we are.  Act 17:28  For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.

We all know how good it makes us feel when we get the recognition we deserve. The raise, the promotion, the admiration. Or how good we feel when are children are truly thankful to us for who we are and what we have done for them.  Those things which bring a smile to our face.

Being thankful can be such an extraordinary quality in us, for it causes us to look outside of ourselves to something greater…like Relationships, Compassion, Mercy, and Love. Thankfulness is a quality that is fading from our society. I learned a saying long ago that has helped me to refocus my heart when I want to complain instead of being Thankful. “I once complained that I didn’t have any shoes until I met a man who didn’t have any feet.”

When was the last time that we really, truly thanked God? For all He has done, providing for our needs, for giving us our children, for the air we breathe, and the moon in the sky. For dying for us on a cross and giving us the opportunity to spend an eternity with Him and our loved ones. There are more than 10,000 reasons.

And I believe when we give to God, our Father and Lord, Jesus Christ, the recognition and honor He deserves, when His children give Him the credit due unto His Name, He will be smiling upon us.

And who knows, maybe one day soon we’ll find out the only reasons the United States is a blessed nation is because we have given thanks to our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ, because our nation has a Judeo/Christian Moral Foundation, [Psalm 33:12] and because of our support and provision for the Great Nation of Israel. [Genesis 12:3]

 

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church.  We invite you to come to the Recfuge.
