West Pulaski Fire Department (Little Rock, Arkansas) www.wpfirerescue.orgPublished by Jason Rogers· January 25 · This may seem like common knowledge for most but when you see an emergency vehicle approaching from behind or approaching you from ahead, please slow down and yield immediately (move over) or when you find a safe place to pull out of their way. At an intersection, hold your place at a stop sign or traffic light so we can drive and wait until the vehicle with emergency lights and siren has passed, even if you have a green light. When seconds count, any emergency vehicle simply wants to get around you quickly and safely. State law requires you to yield. Please give us some room. Stay safe.

2019 Annual Awards – Here is more recognition from our irreplaceable volunteer firefighters that have not only answered the call to serve their community but also keep showing up… for years, sometimes many years. We tell folks that when you join up that the service and desire to serve kind of gets in your blood. The only way to deal with it is to continue answering the call when the call comes in. So, we wanted to recognize special awards over the past year and also those that have met milestones this year. We definitely wanted to acknowledge years of service when sometimes it was not recognized on the true anniversary. We will do better going forward each year to hit closer to the mark but wanted to show those that met a significant milestone, and usually more years, than what was shown on their certificate for this event. Please hold your applause until the end, just kidding….give ’em a standing ovation whenever you are ready.
