Words "Thank You" over an image of a group of opened "Thank You" cards

November 29, 2023

A message from Fire Chief Aaron Lipski:

"Members of the MFD:

I was touched to receive an entire envelope of Thank You cards from the students at St. Augustine Preparatory Academy in thanks for how you keep the community safe.  Attached is a collage sampling of the very sincere note cards.

I am honored to have such amazing firefighters on our team, and I share these cards with all of you as they are a testament to your dedication to those you serve!

Thank you for what you do each and every day, in the face of adversities unimaginable by some, yet taken as a challenge in which success equals rendering aid, saving lives and property, by others."


Thank you, St. Augustine Preparatory Academy!

Hands-Only CPR:  Two Steps to Staying Alive

Hands-Only CPR:  Two Steps to Staying Alive

Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an "out-of-hospital" setting (such as at home, at work, or in a park).  It consists of two easy steps:  1) Call 911 (or send someone to do that) and 2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
