Happy Fire Prevention Week! Fire Prevention Week is October 4th - 10th. This week, we will take time to discuss different fire safety and prevention topics. Throughout this week we will post tips and safety advice you should know and practice before a fire, during a fire, and to prevent a fire in your home. Help us out to spread the word of fire safety by liking our page and sharing our posts.

With modern day building materials and furnishings, home fires are a very real threat. In just two minutes a fire can become life-threatening. In five minutes a residence can be engulfed in flames. Smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do. Fire produces poisonous gases that make you disoriented and drowsy. Asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths, exceeding burns by a 3-to-1 ratio.

Feel free to ask questions or have discussion on this post, and future posts this week, so everyone can benefit in education.

Tune in at this time, Tuesday, for information on preparation you and your family can do before the event of a fire.

Michigan Firemen's Memorial Festival Committee

Michigan Firemen's Memorial Festival Committee postpones Festival
Editor's note: The Michigan Fireman's Memorial Festival Committee met tonight (July 15) to discuss the annual festival.
Firefighters, EMS, and friends:
It is with great sadness we have decided to postpone the Michigan Fireman's Memorial Festival until 2021. COVID-19 has caused postponements or cancellation of multiple events across the state, including the Memorial Service by the Michigan Firefighter's Association at the Statue sight.
As a result, the committee has had to make several other adjustments.
One of those adjustments was the cancellation of our annual $5,000 raffle. This helps defray many of the expenses we incur each year. However, we are having a separate “non face to face” raffle to replace it. Tickets are $5 each, with the drawing is scheduled for Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. You don't need to be present to win. Tickets are available by emailing [email protected], any committee member or through our page at Michigan Fireman's Memorial Festival Committee.
We've also started sales of our collectors badges. That drawing is scheduled for Sept. 19 as well. Badges are available at the Higgins Lake-Roscommon Chamber of Commerce, or by emailing [email protected] Winners will be notified.
The Michigan Firemen's Memorial Festival Magazine is also in production and will be available on newsstands soon! Please support our advertisers.
Looking forward, we are developing several new concepts for 2021, and are looking for volunteers and new members to help. We hope to make good use of this off year as we focus more strongly on our mission, which is to support and honor our fire departments and first responders: “Protecting those who protect us.”
For more information on the festival and committee, please visit our website at firemensmemorial.com
See you in 2021!

Sterling Heights City Hall

Sterling Heights City Hall

On the morning of April 2, the Sterling Heights Fire Department responded to a house fire that took the life of 93-year-old Marcella Nowak. In the course of bringing that fire under control, and after the crews had completed all rescue efforts, Sterling Heights Firefighter/Paramedic Lance Stevens noticed the American Flag flying at the residence was in danger of being damaged and was already covered in soot. FF Stevens removed the flag from the pole and placed it in his coat. He later gave that flag to Firefighter/Paramedic Brad Bachor who took the time to clean and dry the flag then sent it to Fire Administration in hopes that the flag could be returned to the family. When the family was contacted, it became clear that the flag was a very important symbol to their family.

Marcella Nowak flew that flag every day in memory of her late husband and all the others in her family that served their country in war. Her husband, John Nowak, joined the United States Army at age 18 and served in World War II with the 100 Infantry in Germany from 1944-45. Four of John’s brothers also served and all were able to return after the war. John met Marcella and they were married and remained married for 49 years until John passed away in 1996. They resided in that Sterling Heights house since 1970. John and Marcella had two sons, Tom and John. Tom served with the US Army 1st Logistics Command in Vietnam from 1968-69. John served with the US Army 25th Infantry Division in Vietnam from 1969-70.

Prior to becoming a Sterling Heights Firefighter, Lance Stevens served his country in the 88th Airborne Division 573 Regiment for 4 years. Firefighter Stevens recognizes the importance of the American Flag and his actions to protect that flag and get it back to the family may not seem like a big thing, but it certainly meant a lot to the family. The motto of the Sterling Heights Fire Department is “Our Family Helping Yours” and we take that very serious.

Hartland Deerfield Fire Authority

Deputy Chief Mike Eckert is retiring from the Hartland Deerfield Fire Authority after a distinguished 32-years of service in Fire and EMS, including the last 17 years with our Department. Deputy Chief Eckert demonstrated the highest commitment to public service throughout his time with us. He is known throughout the region for his vision and commitment to Firefighter safety and has been leading from the front in key areas of our operations, including health & safety, fitness, readiness, and training. During his tenure, he as been a driving force behind the development and implementation of landmark programs such as routine physicals, physical agility testing, the 20-20-20 Readiness program, and many others.

We salute his devotion to the Department and our Firefighters, and consider it an honor and privilege to have served our community with him. We wish him the best in the future, and though we will miss his steady leadership in our daily operations, we are thrilled he has agreed to “stay-on” as an administrative consultant/advisor. It is people like DC Eckert that have and continue to make this Department and our community the greatest place to live and work. Congratulations and thanks, Mike!
