WPFD Annual Fundraiser – Sept 23, 2017 – Advertise with Us Now

West Pulaski Volunteer Fire Department will be holding its annual “All-You-Can-Eat Chicken & Catfish Dinner” this year on Sept 23, 2017.  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 3,200 houses and approximately 9,000+ 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 15-20th). 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 3rd.

Contact us at 501-821-9320 or email us at wpfd@sbcglobal.net for info.

Thanks for supporting your local volunteer fire department.

Annual Hose and Hydrant Testing Underway

About this time each year WPFD crews head out into our fire district to ensure our equipment meets standard operating requirements. We test all of our hoses at high pressure and ensure hydrants operate properly.

Hydrants need to be accessible with no obstructions and overgrowth removed. Caps must be removable from fittings and valves need to be operable, and with reasonable force.

Hoses get a treatment of high pressure for a timed duration.  We pump 200 psi of water to each line and ensure it can hold that pressure for 10 minutes or more.  These hoses come from the factory able to hold 800 psi but regular wear and tear can take a toll.

We make sure everything works as expected and remove/replace anything that doesn’t make the cut.
