This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. Everyday our crews are getting thanked for the job they do as firefighters, but the true first responder often gets overlooked.... our dispatchers.

April marks a significant month for safety awareness as we observe National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The Springdale Fire Department is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents, which extends beyond responding to emergencies – it's about proactive prevention and education. Distracted driving is a serious issue that affects countless lives each year. Whether it's texting, eating, adjusting the radio, or any other form of distraction, the consequences can be devastating for drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and emergency responders alike. As firefighters, we witness the tragic outcomes of distracted driving far too often, and we're dedicated to doing everything in our power to prevent such incidents from occurring. During this month of awareness, we urge all members of the community to join us in taking a stand against distracted driving.

This morning, two of our members, Paramedic Preston Murphy and Firefighter/EMT Josh Carpenter, were recognized with the Living the Mission Award from Northwest Medical Center. On January 15th, 2024 Northwest Medical Center needed a pediatric patient transported to Tulsa for specialty care. Weather conditions were presenting challenges to the transport decision. Although these types of transfers are not typical for us, this is one that needed to occur. These two members were assigned the task and safely delivered the patient and family to The Children's Hospital at St. Francis.
