West Pulaski Volunteer Fire Department will be holding its annual “All-You-Can-Eat Chicken & Catfish Dinner” this year on Sept 22, 2018. Each year, this dinner provides great food and fellowship with our friends and neighbors. Any funds raised from our annual dinner are used to benefit our all-volunteer fire department’s needs to acquire the proper tools and equipment to serve our community better and protect our firefighters.
Each year, we hand-deliver our professionally printed fire department newsletter, fundraiser dinner announcement, and advertisements from our local business supporters to the homes of residents in our fire district. This includes over 3,500 houses and approximately 10,000+ residents! At this time, we are asking for your sponsorship to help us offset some of the cost of the dinner and advertising. We hope we can do a little advertising for your business as you support your local volunteer fire department. We will be distributing our announcement flyers on the week before the dinner (approximately Sept 13-16th). If you are interested in purchasing an advertisement, of any size, please submit your advertisement copy (simple business card will do) and payment to us by Sept 1st.
Contact us at 501-821-9320 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
Thanks for supporting your local volunteer fire department.

Snake story. WPFD got a mention in this news report due to our Facebook post from the weekend about 2 snake bites last week. Watch this and don’t forget to vote in our FB poll about what YOU do to keep snakes away from your living spaces. We want to know!
Don’t get bit!
WPFD has responded to 2 snake bite calls this week. Apparently the snakes are in a mood to bite and the folks in our fire district seem to be good targets.
So, what do you do to keep snakes away from your living space? Do you just clear brush? Do you have a chemical pesticide or treatment? Vote on your remedy that works for you. If you don’t see your solution listed then tell us about it in the comments.
BY THE WAY, WATCH OUT FOR SNAKES!
83%Clear grass/weeds only
17%Pesticide (ex. Malthion)
WPFD and Ferndale Crimewatch in the news.
Great story about why you need the best possible address sign to help us find YOU in an emergency. Contact Marcella at the Ferndale Crimewatch to order your sign before she runs out. Apparently all of central Arkansas is about to order our fancy red signs that no one else sells. Call 501-912-4211.
Well, it happened again today. Someone dials 911 and we cannot quickly find the address for which we were dispatched. It is kind of frustrating to find multiple driveways/ roads and several are missing or have obstructed address numbers for each.
Imagine if you called for help and the one thing that got us to your door was a good set of address numbers. Even if your numbers are perfect, what if we are delayed because your neighbor’s address numbers were missing, incomplete, or barely visible? And, what if we went to the wrong address while searching for the correct one? We can lose minutes when seconds count.
YOU can help us help YOU in an emergency by having great address numbers posted. YOU can also help us get a little further down the road when we respond on your street by ensuring YOUR numbers are effective and visible from any direction of travel.
And don’t let a neighbor drag down your neighborhood, either. If someone nearby needs some address improvements, help them get with the program soon so it benefits everyone in your area!
Not sure what works best? Respond to this post with your comments or questions. Need a great address sign to fix any problem? Reach out to Marcella at the Ferndale Crimewatch (501-912-4211) today for a good deal on a great sign for your driveway, fence, gate, or home. The popular high visibility red signs seen all over our fire district are only $15!
Already got a great set of numbers? Show us a pic of what you got! Share here!
Stay safe, Y’all.
