October Update
Posted: Thursday, October 11, 2012

Dear Inbound friends and family,


 


It is already October and we still have two engines working.  We had a good year!  Everyone came home safely!  Our hand crews worked over 80 days and our engines worked well over 300 shifts.  I saw a lot of growth in our young leaders and our new firefighters.  You each overcame personal obstacles and persevered.  For each of you who gave your best...I am so proud of you and proud to be part of what you are building...a professional, dependable, consistent, and reliable provider of emergency services.


We can reflect on our accomplishments and should!  However, we should also take time to learn from our struggles and owe it to each other to suggest areas of improvement.  I am hoping that anyone who has a suggestion on how Inbound can be better will be comfortable calling me directly at 503-473-4851 to discuss.  It is my intention to have a year end company get together as well...and I hope the sharing of ideas on how WE can improve is a headline topic.


We also are able to upgrade our equipment this year thanks to all of your efforts.  This means we will have four 4x4 trucks per crew next year as well as True North fire packs to match the capabilities of our crew.  This will continue our goal of putting out a crew that meets Initial Attack (IA) specifications!


As this season winds down please remember to keep me updated with address and phone number changes.  I will be sending out tax forms and training updates early in January and need to be able to have positive communication.  Refresher trainings will begin in April. If anyone needs anything administratively, now is a good time to get it done.


I encourage everyone to undertake an off-season physical fitness regime such as Fire-Fit.  Thank you for all of your hard work.  I hope to see everyone at the year end get together...probably in November.


Thanks, Dillon
