The Badge Pinning Ceremony recognizes the entry of a firefighter’s career and marks each promotion. While it might seem odd to mark the beginning of a career with such fanfare, the probationary firefighter has already jumped through quite a few hoops before making it to this point. Besides the training, certifications and experience they bring with them, they have also completed a very competitive testing process. Before being hired, the probationary firefighter has successfully taken a written exam, a physical agility test, completed an assessment center, panel interview, a chief’s interview and a rigorous background check.  

Firefighter Paramedics Brian Legato and Josh Weston will have their badges pinned on Thursday February 6th.  This marks their last shift on days and transition to shift assignments.  Firefighter Paramedic Dennis Schafer and Firefighter Zach Hougan will be pinned at their North Bend graduation.

New Years 2020 will mark a monumental change at the Fire District. After more than 36 years serving Clark County Fire District 6, Commissioner Dean Bloemke is stepping down.

Commissioner Bloemke was an active volunteer firefighter and Captain with the District for over 36 years. In addition to in-house training, he completed numerous courses in officer development, the Incident Command System, hazardous materials incident operations and others through the State Command and Fire Schools.
He served in the Facilities Maintenance Division at the District from 2001-2007. In 2005, he received the Chief’s Award for Professionalism and Service and an Appreciation Award from the Firefighter’s union.

We want to thank Dean for his years of service to Clark County Fire District 6, and we wish him well in the future.
