Dubuque Racing Association awards Epworth Fire/EMS a 2018 Grant

Chief Thomas Berger, July 20

The Epworth Community Volunteer Firemen were awarded a 2018 Dubuque Racing Association Grant that allowed for the purchase "Binder Lift" patient lifting devices for the ambulance service.

The new devices will be placed on multiple units of the Epworth Fire Department and will allow EMS responders to lift patients and move them safely. It also decreases the chances for injuries to the responders as there are multiple straps and locations for multiple people to share in the lifting.

The DRA provided a $3,000.00 grant to purchase the lifts which almost covered the total cost of the project. ... (Full Story & Photos)

Picnic Thank You

Retired - Firefighter Gary Wilgenbusch, July 14

The women and men of the Epworth Community Volunteer Fire Department would like to take this moment to say thank you to all the people that came out and supported the department last night. You had to brave the heat and humidity and then a severe thunderstorm threatened to stop the entire event in its tracks. Unfortunately the storm forced the closure of the exterior inflatable rides and games for the kids, but you weathered the storm and gave us your support anyway.

Thank you.... (Full Story)

Firefighter II/EMT-B Daniel Kramer, June 12

At our monthly drill on May 21, 2018 all members of the Epworth Fire Department trained on the new MSA SCBAs (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus units) that were recently obtained through a Fire Act Grant. All new 16 SCBAS were tested and put in to service. These replace all the 15 year old SCBAs previously used. Members heavily practiced throughout the evening using the SCBAs at all levels including interior attacks and injured/downed firefighter techniques. Seen here are several pictures from that training.
