Our community disaster has been under the management of federal authorities for three days now, and we have completed our emergency response and evacuation, and have responded to all the life safety situations we have faced.

We are aware that this continues to be a difficult situation for us all. Thanks again for your patience and understanding.  BMFPD firefighters and a host of other volunteers are working as hard as we can to respond to emergencies and restore road access, utilities and some semblance of normal life.  Many of our volunteer firefighters have had less than 12 hours of sleep since this disaster began on Wednesday.

Besides helping dozens of district residents de-clutter, the BMFPD Auxiliary's Garage Sale, held May 17-19, raised significant funds to support the Department. One family donated a Ford Explorer, successfully auctioned by Chief Benson. Net proceeds are estimated around $30,000.

A live auction by our own fast-talking fire chief John Benson is just one feature of the 2013 Garage Sale.

The Sale, to be held from 9-4 daily, Fri-Sat-Sun, May 17-18-19, will wrap up with a one-hour 'everything must go"

live auction.

 

The sale takes up every inch of space at Fire Station 1 at 1905 Linden in Pine Brook Hills.

 

Great values are a regular feature of this annual event, which raises thousands for the Department to add life-safety equipment

and to support the work of the Auxiliary.

BMFPD Ballot Issue 5A - General Operating Mill Levy Measure

Maryanne Kurtinaitis's picture

The November election will include BMFPD ballot issue 5A which proposes to increase the General Operating Mill Levy from 6.189 to 8.912. This tax increase would generate $150,000 per year for BMFPD to maintain our current level of services and restore Capital Equipment Funding.

The new mill levy rate would increase the property tax of a homeowner by about $108 per year for a home with a market value of $500,000. The supplemental water supply sub district mill levy would remain unchanged at 1.809 mills.

2012 FIRE SAFETY SALE SEPT 22 AND 23

Last year, over 100 families in our district updated their home fire safety equipment - smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, CO detectors - and learned from our volunteer firefighters how to use a fire extinguisher on a real fire.

Join us this year - Sept 22 and 23 from 9 am to 4 pm - for extinguisher training, new equipment, and to meet some of your neighbors who volunteer with the Department.
