On Thursday, April 10, 2014, the Mayetta Fire Department attended a training of different sorts. The firefighters of the Mayetta Fire Department attended a training at Todd Stauffer's, the Chief of the Department's shop, Stauffer Salvage. This training included extrication from a car from a car crash. All of the firefighters were involved in locating all of the "victims" (real people were not used, as shown in the pictures. Only dummies were used in this training), getting to the victim trapped under the car, removing the car door in the way using cutters and spreaders, and all members had an opportunity to use both the cutters and spreaders with those with experience in the equipment helping those who had never used them before. The extrication training is only one of the several hands-on training that the Mayetta Fire Department will be involved in during this year.
Over the course of March 19th through March 23rd, Fire fighters of the Mayetta Fire Department took 13 classes. While our fire fighters took some classes together, 13 was the total.
The classes taken on Wednesday, March 19th include:

The Mayetta Fire Department would like to thank all of those who came out to enjoy our Soup Supper. Posted below are some images from the night. The night consisted of three (3) different kinds of soups, including Chicken and Noodle, Chili, and Vegetable Soup, along with many different deserts ranging from pie to cookies.
On January 25th, 2014, the Mayetta Rural Fire Department is hosting a Soup Supper. Instead of a pancake feed, which is what is normally held, it will be soup. It will be held from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Mayetta Fire Station. Voluntary donations are accepted.
The Mayetta Fire Department hosted their Second Annual Christmas Party, featuring Santa Claus himself! While the firefighters and their families were eating dinner, Santa Claus and his helper, Bob Gay, came in with a basket full of Christmas presents! Santa and Bob passed out the presents for all of the children in attendance. Then, they passed out the presents for the firefighters and some of those who have helped out the fire department, including the fire chief's son, Tim Smith, and the assistant fire chief's daughter, Cierra Boyer.

The Mayetta Firefighters that were in attendance at the Balls of Fire golf tournament.
There were 26 golfing teams in attendance at the 2013 Balls of Fire Golf Tournament. There was about $3000 raised before fees and after all fees were taken out, there was a total of around $1,500 raised for the Fire Association.
Diana Lay and Michael Cochran were the Balls of Fire golf tournaments co-coordinators.
"I would like to thank everyone who was able to come out to support us and play at the 2nd annual Balls of Fire Golf tournament. We were able to raise some much needed funds for our fire department. If you think this year was fun, just wait until next year. Many surprises will be in store. So in two words, I have endless gratitude. Thank you - Diana Lay, Mayetta Fire Department.
