STATION 81 CLOSED TO VISITATION
In light of the recent Coronavirus Pandemic and confirmed cases within the Flathead County, Evergreen Fire Rescue will be taking measures to limit exposure risk to ourselves as well as the general public. Until further notice Evergreen Station 81 will be closed to public visitation and food donation. Additionally, our previously reservable Community Room will be unavailable until further notice in order to comply with county and CDC recommended guidelines.
As always our fire and medical services will continue as normal, although with extra implemented safety precautions regarding personal protective equipment. If you are feeling sick, multiple tools and hotlines have been established that should be utilized prior to calling 911.
2020 LLS Firefighter stairclimb
The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition, and annual fundraiser held at the tallest building in town, the Columbia Center. All 2,000 participants are career or volunteer firefighters who will climb up the second tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi in full turnout gear, weighing over 50 pounds, while on-air. Throughout the 69 flights of stairs, 1,356 steps, and 788 ft. of vertical elevation gain, we all remember
that every step forward is representative of moving
closer to a cure. Although this is an extreme test of
physical endurance, it pales in comparison to what
blood cancer patients endure. All proceeds raised
directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Due to the recent Coronavirus pandemic, this year's event has been indefinitely postponed. Nonetheless, a team of five Evergreen firefighters raised $5,420 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, with this year's event totaling nearly 2.4 million dollars! The LLS uses these donations to support blood cancer research as well as provide support and services to blood cancer patients and families, including co-pay assistance. Thank you to all those who donated, as well as the Spinnaker Bar in Lakeside for graciously hosting a fundraiser.
We are excitedly looking toward 2021's event!
