North Lincoln Fire Captain Jim Kusz would like to thank all the volunteers who came out over the weekend to do more community outreach about earthquake and tsunami preparedness. The Tsunami Outreach crew was popping up all over town, including walking the beach passing out informational broshures to beach-go’ers to let them know what to do when the earth shakes and then head to higher ground.
Captain Kusz is also doing a shout-out to volunteers to help them at the Lincoln County Fair which begins next weekend in Newport. Capt. Kusz said they want to provide an encoure performance of their side-by-side room fire; one with sprinklers, one without and the huge difference in outcomes when sprinklers kick in after about a 45 seconds of smoke, heat and gases. It’s a spectacular demonstration.
