     The calm of a warm late summer afternoon came to an abrupt end Thursday, Sept. 21, when Humboldt County emergency personnel were dispatched to a fire in Dakota City.

     The fire broke out in a 24-foot by 30-foot storage shed at 25 5th Street North, one half block north of Trinkets and Treasures, on the east side of the street.

     The NVFC fall meeting was hosted in Kearney by the NSVFA. This photo was taken at the Axtell Fire Station with a fire truck and farm equipment where the attendees were welcomed to a delicious Nebraska beef meal…prime rib.

     On Sept. 19, Stanton Volunteer Fire responded to a vehicle fire at Kuehn Auto Body in Stanton. It was determined the fire was caused by a mechanical malfunction. Upon arrival of fire crews the engine compartment was engulfed in flames and heavy smoke.

     As I start my last letter as 1st Vice President I find myself thinking back to when I put my name in as 2nd Vice President. I took this on with pride and enthusiasm of being a part of the NSVFA. As I have always said from the start that I wanted to be a voice for all First Responders.
