In 2016 our members responded to over 12,000 emergencies out of five stations. We have a minimum of 20 members on-duty at any given time and we serve over 80,000 citizens in Algona, Auburn, and Pacific.
We respond to all kinds of emergencies which include but are not limited to structural fires, car fires, brush/grass fires, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, explosions, hazardous material leaks/spills, and weather related emergencies. Our rescue team is housed at Station 33 in the Lakeland Hills Community, which specializes in rope rescue, dive rescue, and swift water rescue.
Local 1352 supports several organizations by fundraising, donating, and assisting in other activities. Many of our members volunteer time on their days off to assist with these events. Many people are familiar with "Fill the Boot" that we do for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, but we also do many other events.
One of the local organizations that we are proud to assist with is the Auburn Valley Humane Society. We assist with multiple events, members attend the annual "Winner's Circle Gala", and we provide auction items to assist with fundraising. The AVHS does a great job of finding homes for stray and surrendered pets, and take in over 1,700 pets per year!
In 2016 Local 1352 worked with Operation Warm to provide dozens of children in need with jackets that are made in the US! Jackets are something that people often take for granted and it is very rewarding to see a child get so excited about receiving a coat.
We support many other organizations and causes. If you would like to partner with Local 1352, please contact us!
