Eli Staton – EOW 2/4/2018

Remembering Eli Staton. Eli was a career firefighter with North Little Rock Fire Department and passed away this morning at the young age of 26. He previously worked for Stuttgart Fire Department. Before that he was a volunteer firefighter with us at WPFD and responded with our Station 1. He got his start with us and proved his service heart was big enough to make a career out of his passion to serve others.

Our prayers go out to his wife, family and fire family in this difficult time.

Public Service Announcement…it is a little dry out there.

We have had a few wild grass fires lately. Some may want to burn leaves and such but we would recommend waiting a bit. Moisture should be coming into the area this weekend and might provide some humidity to slow the fire risk. We have a crew on Woodand Acres Drive now but here is a recent pic of a very recent fire. Be careful, y’all. You won’t want to get flames too close to your houses.
