FROMTHEEDITORS

SHOPPING OFFLINE

A

ll year long, I’ve anticipated this fashion and shopping issue. Without much of a fight, my co-editor, Nolan, gave over the reigns for this issue’s cover story and let me dive heels first into Fargo fashion. When planning this cover story, I teamed with a number of local boutiques to style some outfits for a big photoshoot together. I, foolishly, told all the stores that I would drop by between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on the Thursday before the photoshoot to pick up the garments we were going to use. Did I really think that I could run to every store and style multiple outfits in that small window? What can I say, I get ambitious when it comes to fashion. What I found was that it was impossible to just run in and out of any given FargoMoorhead boutique. If you’ve ever met any local shop owners or managers, you’ll understand what I mean. We all got caught up chatting about styling ideas, cracking jokes and just enjoying ourselves. We were talking about New York Fashion Week, local trends, new arrivals to the store, our favorite brands, what it means to shop ethically and so

much more. As a fashion junkie, this was my heaven. How did I actually think I could simply grab and go on my styling quest? While shopping online is an undeniable pleasure and easy as ever (my card number is saved on my browser for easy access), the planning of this issue reminded me of the joys of shopping inperson and shopping local. While I was trying (and often failing) to make each shop visit quick and efficient, I couldn’t pass up the friendly conversations with all the stylists I worked with. Next time you have a special occasion you need something new for or even the next time you’ve had a rough day and need some retail therapy, I encourage you to pull your hand away from the mouse and visit a local boutique. With friendly faces excited to help you find that perfect piece and a wide variety of options no matter your age, size or style, you won’t be disappointed. Until Next Month,

Alexandra Martin


THE

COMFORT KING

I

am not what you would call a fashion icon. Most of the clothes I wear have been around a while. Believe it or not, I still occasionally wear shirts I had in sixth grade (my mom was a master of buying big so she didn’t have to keep buying me clothes). Some of them have been owned by other people as I am sort of a thrift store aficionado. When it comes to jeans and nice pants, I’ll splurge and spend $25-$30 on a pair, but nothing more. I cannot justify spending too much money on clothes. Hence, why you will never see me wear dress shirts, polos or anything dressy. It’s not my personality to look professional. That probably sounds weird, but I don’t think the way I dress translates to how well I do my job or act towards others. I am just as professional in a flannel, t-shirt and jeans as I would be in dress clothes. Maybe it’s because I’m cheap (because I am), but I’d rather spend my money on other things. It’s also a matter of comfortability. I’m comfortable in jeans, t-shirts, hats, flannels, crewnecks, Chuck Taylor’s and sweatshirts. I am not comfortable in dress clothes and why would I go through life uncomfortable? Anyway, knowing this was the fashion issue, I wanted Alexandra to take the lead. She went to school for stuff like this

and is extremely passionate about the fashion industry. It would be nonsensical for me to not let her take this one. However, the topic of shopping is not limited to just clothing. I do shop, but for things that I deem essential (i.e. books, vinyl records, food, supplements, etc.). The cool thing about Fargo is that I can get all of those things at local stores. Here are my favorites: BDS Books • 1200 1st Ave N #B, Fargo Vinyl Giant • 626 2nd Ave N, Fargo Hornbacher’s • 101 11th St S, Moorhead (Seven other locations in the Metro) H&I Nutrition • 1801 45th St S, Fargo So if you’re looking to shop differently, make sure to shop local. Whether you know if or not, Fargo offers local stores and vendors for all of your shopping needs.

Each year on the first Monday in May is the notorious Met Gala, celebrating the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. The event and exhibit celebrate the long-standing relationship between art and fashion and opens up the discussion of fashion as art itself. Many state lines away, we are not in the Upper East Side of New York City, but we are in Fargo-Moorhead. However, this is not to say that fashion doesn’t exist here in the midwest. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Locally, shops and boutiques set the pace of what will be seen on the streets of downtown Fargo. This month, we met in our very own art museum, The Rourke Art Gallery + Museum, and recruited some local artists to model looks from nearby boutiques. In a town like Fargo, no one industry stands alone, but instead, they are all intermingled and supportive of one another. We selected young, local artists as our models to showcase the art of styling, but also to celebrate the unity of sectors that make Fargo so special. These artists embody what it means to be an artist in Fargo while also showcasing the variety of styles available in the area. No matter your age, price range, size or style, our area has shopping that will be sure to satisfy your needs. Hillary Ehlen The Rourke Art Gallery + Museum

MEET THE

Kanji Naturals A

s we start to dive into chillier weather and the beauty of fall, we were super excited to meet tea maker and creator Lynn Park of Kanji Naturals!

INTERVIEW BY Ashley Morken, Unglued

28 | OCTOBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Tell us a bit about yourself. I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and went to school at Brigham Young University where I received my Master’s Degree in Food Science with an emphasis in Nutrition. I spent the next 12 years working for Kraft, Kraft General Foods and Stella Foods and “retired” to homeschool my three children. I now also help tutor high school students a couple of days a week. My passion is photography and I also garden, hike in the woods, research and be with my family. What products do you sell under Kanji Naturals? I’ve created 14 tea blends, flower essences, floral art with dried/pressed flowers and plaster relief floral art. Plans are to add herbal incense next year. All of the herbs and flowers used in these products are grown in my gardens. As my business grows, I do resource some of the

herb volumes through an organic supplier. Where is the name from? Trees have always been very healing for me. As a child when I needed to feel safe, I climbed a tree; as an adult when I need to destress, I hike in the woods. I was reading an article about Shinrin Yoku one day and they referred to the Japanese writing of Chinese characters or Kanji. In the article, they discussed the Kanji Character of 木 as a tree and the character 休 as a person snuggling a tree which meant rest. It just resonated with me so I held onto that name. Favorite tea blend you’ve created? Probably a toss between Sunny Soul and Calm and Focus. Sunny Soul just helps me relax and feel loved. Calm and Focus helps to slow my spinning thoughts, get to task and stay focused on what I need to work on. They taste great, too.


Tell us about the illustrations on your packaging. My husband is an artist and professor at MSUM. A former student of his (Creative Monke) helped create the look we wanted for our labels and my husband creates the illustrations. I choose a predominant herb for each blend that he uses. We do sell his original illustrations, too. What is your most essential tool? My dehydrator and my Ninja blender for drying and grinding herbs. It is a constant process for me all summer long. How has your food science degree and work in the industry impacted your business? This experience provides me with an understanding of labeling, working with inspectors and producing a quality product, which is very useful in producing my teas. I take great pride in producing the best and freshest herbal tea blends.

Favorite thing about working with tea? I get to spend my days doing what brings me joy - getting my hands in the dirt, working with plants and healing. I have a philosophy of healing with what grows around you and I enjoy discovering what grows well here and their medicinal properties. What has been the most challenging thing doing this business? Being dependent on the weather and natural pests. I like to be in control and I cannot control that. The next challenge would be space. Storing all the herbs so I can keep making tea blends all winter long.

kanjinaturals.com

What advice would you give yourself 10 years ago? Look to your inner child, never forget your hopes and dreams and how to play. Believe in yourself, love yourself and take time to play and stick your hands and feet in the dirt. Don’t worry so much about what other people think; Forge your own happiness. This wisdom has come at a high price and great growth. Where can people find you? Currently, my products can be found at Unglued & Naturally Randi Kay’s Studio in downtown Fargo, at Grateful Cratefulls in West Fargo, and the Bluebird Coffeehouse and Cafe in South Fargo. I also have a booth at the Red River Market.

THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL

FROM THE

pearl of the indian ocean TO THE SHORES OF THE RED RIVER

Conversations on locality, home and belonging Asalaam'Alaykum Beloved Readers! (“Peace be with you” in Arabic) As the summer is timidly being replaced by the fall season our college town is getting ready for Homecoming parades, therefore I wanted to explore the meaning of HOME. Meet Farhiya Abdulkarim, a Muslim, Somali-American, who calls the FargoMoorhead area home. Her academic background is in Education and English Literature. She is passionate and committed to causes that drive equitable and transformative change in communities. She is the Diversity Coordinator for Programs at Concordia College, a Narrative 4 facilitator, and an 32 | OCTOBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

active member of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce’s Professional of Colors' committee. Outside of her work, she is a mother, an avid reader, a foodie, a creative, and an empathy advocate If you ever cross her humble path you will be compelled to exchange few words with Farhiya because of her contagious smile and magnetic aura! Happy Homecoming & Happy Fall! Bisonly/Cobberly/Dragonly yours, Alexandre Cyusa

Where do you call home?

I would like to think I am a global citizen but there is a lot more to unpack than that. The notion of “home” for me is a complex and multilayered one rooted in displacement and duality. The most common phrase I have been asked is “where are you from”? My most common response has been “Somalia”. What that fails to capture or illustrate is the complex and multilayered nature of my sense of belonging. I was born in Somalia and have been in the Fargo-Moorhead area since my formative years. And despite my pride in Somali culture, its coastal landscape, the strength and beauty of its people, my love for chai and the


food, I’ve never had a relationship with the Republic of Somalia. My relationship with Somalia is deeply rooted in my expressive use of Afka Hooyo (mother tongue), in my experiences, in my culture and family traditions that have been passed down. With these rituals, experiences and relationships, also comes restrictions, in navigating and negotiating my identity as both Somali and American. Therefore, my relationship with home isn’t a singular experience, it’s a culmination of experiences, rituals, relationships, restrictions and negotiations in the world.

What does Homecoming mean to you? Homecoming – is twofold for me, of going and coming home. It stirs feelings of uncertainty, familiarity, of wholeness, of displacement and of belonging.

The author, Nayyirah Waheed vividly captures this complexity in her piece, “Immigrant.” In “Immigrant,” she writes, “you broke the ocean in half to be here. Only to meet nothing that wants you.”

Why did you come back to the Fargo area?

There is an Arabic term, maktoub, meaning “it was written.” I was rerouted home because it was what I needed, and where I needed to be.

What are your hopes and aspirations for the FM area?

That’s a loaded question. I have a lot of hopes and aspirations for this place because I deeply care for it, and caring deeply means acknowledging the moment in history it finds itself but hopeful for a possibility of changing for its own betterment.

My desire is for it to acknowledge the histories and contributions of Native Americans, POC and immigrants in this area. I hope that this place can embrace, and share a collective community story that is reflective of its people and restores the dignity of others.

When you travel, what do people say when you say “home is Fargo?”

(Laughs). I get a mixture of fascination and curious glances. I get asked if the movie “Fargo” was based on the place. And oftentimes, people have no clue where it is, and cannot fathom how someone like myself ended up here.

What would you like the world to know about Fargo? There is a lot that I would want people to know about Fargo and most of it is rooted in my own experiences. But it is a place of extremes, exceedingly cold winters and warm to hot, humid summers. For a city it’s size, there is a lot of cultural opportunities and a vibrant arts community. There is a lot of momentum happening here, and the city is finding itself in a new place. It’s an uncertain but hopeful place to be.

What are your favorite community activities in the FM area during the Fall?

My favorite activities during the fall are the Fall Festival at Rheault Farm, Saturday Red River Market runs, prayers at the mosque, sipping on homemade Somali chai and eating warm off the press crispy chapati with my daughter.

5 words to describe our dear Red River Valley? North of Normal. Entrepreneurial Spirit.

Paving the

Runway to Success

Melissa Vettel started her company, 521handmade, in 2014. Here, she creates inspirational quote pillows and jewelry from her home studio in West Fargo. Her wares can be found in her online store and in over 35 boutiques across the United States. Fashion had always been something Vettel was interested in. She saw herself working for a fashion magazine, opening a boutique or even becoming an interior designer. When she was in high school and learned about the ARMD program at NDSU, she knew it was the right fit for her to narrow her path and discover what it was she was going to do.

T

he global fashion and textile industry is an ever-growing, multi-trillion-dollar industry and alumni from this program contribute to that growth. With a theoretically based education with practical application, NDSU prepares its students to enter one of the highest-grossing industries in the global economy. Thanks to the size and nature of the ever-growing apparel and manufacturing industry, career opportunities for those entering the field are limitless and NDSU produces students ready to take on the everchanging field. Out of the Classroom Many fashion students come to college with aspirations of a career that lands them in the fashion capital of the United

Vettel has enjoyed embracing community since starting her business. “I love being a part of local events where I get to actually meet my customers in real life! Seeing someone react to a product that you created is literally the best feeling,” she said.

States, New York City. For some, these dreams come to fruition earlier than graduation, thanks to the Visiting Student Program at The Fashion Institute of Technology. NDSU is one such school allowed to offer this option to their students. The department affiliation with FIT allows students to attend FIT for a semester or year to gain valuable experience in the fashion field. This experience on the ground in New York City gives a unique and invaluable experience to participating students, something NDSU is proud to offer.

Beyond interacting with her customers, she learned in her schooling about the power of professional connections. “Many of the people you are going to class with will become a great network for you when you are looking for a job in the future,” she said. Attending a specialized program like the ARMD degree at NDSU puts students alongside peers of similar skills, interests and goals. This commonality makes NDSU’s ARMD Program a perfect pool of potential business partners and supporters.

For further experiences outside of the classroom and Fargo, the program offers yearly Study Tours. Attending one of these tours is a requirement for Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design majors. In the past, tour locations have been 35

Erica Kale (‘15)

Store Manager at Kindred People Major: Apparel, Retail Merchandising & Design Minors: Public Relations & Advertising and Business Administration Erica Kale is the store manager of Kindred People in downtown Fargo and has been there since it opened in 2017. Here, they stock popular national brands like Free People and BB Dakota alongside goods from local makers. Kale graduated from NDSU in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design. “I chose the NDSU fashion program because fashion was literally the only thing I was ever interested in as a kid. I would draw dresses or obsess over fashion magazines. I also liked that their program has such a variety of different classes and focuses — it was just as much about marketing, manufacturing and public relations as it was about fashion.” From her time in the degree program, Kale learned about the business side of the industry she grew up loving. At NDSU, she was treasurer and then president of FABO (Fashion Apparel Business Organization). In this, she learned the leadership, teamwork and interpersonal skills that she utilizes day-to-day as a boutique manager. The connection between these skills with knowledge of the global industry is something she has found valuable. “I left [the program] knowing I could go 100 different directions with my career and how big the fashion industry is in the world, with its impact on other industries, the earth and individuals’ lifestyles,” she said. NDSU prepares its students in this program with a core that allows them to go any direction they desire. Kale has been able to do just this and has enjoyed being involved in the community, while in college and beyond.

in Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York City. During the tour, students get to learn about the industry in whichever city they are in and learn more about career opportunities in these cities. Learning outside of the classroom and practical application is part of what makes this program really stand out. Students in the program also have the ability to take on career-changing internships. Current student Maggie Barrett spent this past summer interning in New York City at A3 Apparel, a women’s denim company. Here she was a showroom intern working on the design team and the marketing team, assisting with working with fit models, creating spec sheets, measuring samples and even taking on marketing tasks. Barrett said, “This summer my dreams literally came true. I was exposed to so much in this [New York] that we don’t have in Fargo. It was a life-changing learning experience.” Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design senior Grace Lynch also completed an internship in New York

City this summer, working as a creative intern for Windowswear, the world’s largest visual merchandising database. Of her experience, she said, “Visual Merchandising was never something I thought about as a career choice, but I am now more interested due to all the history and aspects of merchandising I learned while working with professionals. Taking an internship in New York gave me the confidence to take a risk in the future, and having an internship in NYC will allow me to get my foot in the door at many companies.” Lynch and Barrett are among the many students whose eyes were opened to career opportunities thanks to their internship experiences. In the Field Graduates from the Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design program leave with an in-depth understanding of the global fashion marketplace. The solid educational core allows graduates to go out and achieve their goals by being flexible in a quickly changing workplace and being innovative as they navigate their careers.

On the Runway Each spring, NDSU’s FABO (Fashion Apparel & Business Organization) organizes a fashion show produced completely by the students, giving a great leadership opportunity for those participating. These students pick the show theme, organize the details, schedule and style models and more, getting a full fashion show coordination experience. The show includes student designs as well as fashions from local retail stores, showcasing craftsmanship and merchandising/styling. The next FABO fashion show will be April 29, 2020 at noon in the Memorial Union Ballroom. For more info: ndsu.edu/adhm

Brenna Bigwood (‘17)

Co-Line Leader/Buyer at Scheels Major: Apparel, Retail Merchandising & Design Minor: Business Administration Brenna Bigwood has been working with Scheels for three and a half years now, starting as an intern in the buying office, then working in the store and now as a Co-Line Leader/Buyer. Bigwood graduated from NDSU in 2017 with an emphasis on Retail Merchandising and a minor in Business Administration. Throughout high school, Bigwood loved fashion but went into NDSU for their business school. However, she serendipitously found the ARMD program and knew that was the right path for her. “I actually stumbled upon the fashion program on my first day of classes while trying to find a different class. After learning there was a fashion program at NDSU, I made an appointment with my advisor that very same day and switched my major to Retail Merchandising and changed all of my classes to fit the necessary curriculum,” she said.

Alumna Melissa Vettel (‘10) started her business, 521handmade, five years ago. But before that, she was a retail store manager. She attributes her degree in Apparel and Textiles to helping her really understand the behind-the-scenes work it takes to be successful in retail. She said, “I believe that my degree allowed me to be taken seriously for the management opportunities I had at such a young age.” As with many arts-driven careers, some see a degree as not being necessary, but Vettel shows that her degree is what helped her establish herself as a trustworthy and knowledgeable source in the workplace.

No matter what your post-graduation aspirations are, the NDSU Apparel, Retail Merchandising and Design program prepares its students for success. Alumni from this program have gone on to work in product development and management, visual merchandising, technical design, fashion writing and editing, sourcing, social media marketing, fashion styling and owning and operating their own business. To see how alumni from the program are making waves in the fashion community of Fargo, here are some alumni highlights. These NDSU alumni are using what they learned in the classroom and translating it to their own businesses needs.

Bigwood benefited from the community classroom that the school provided. Not only do students learn from professors, but also from local industry professionals. The program encourages networking and many classes incorporate guest speakers. At one point, Bigwood sat in on a product development presentation by Scheels in a class and learned about their internship program. She ended up applying and being selected for the internship, which then helped her get her foot in the door with the company and to the role she is at today. “The most valuable thing that I learned during my time at NDSU was to never be afraid to put yourself out there. [...]The more you do it, the more comfortable you become with it which, in turn, builds confidence,” shared Bigwood. Through her time in the program, she learned the importance of getting involved, confidence and networking. In addition to the industry knowledge she learned, these interpersonal skills have helped Bigwood get to where she is today.

Per sources inside Bulldog Tap, the Colorado Bulldog is the top-selling drink at this south Fargo hot spot. It begins with a mixture of vodka, Kahlua liqueur and cream. Once those two are combined, Bulldog Tap adds traditional cola to the mixture. Top it with some cocoa powder and hazelnut and you have a sweet drink to enjoy at any time during the day. bulldog tAp

pumpkin spice chai with blended espresso As the weather gets colder and the calendar turns to October, pumpkin spice becomes the flavor of choice. In many cases, the pumpkin flavor can be drowned out thanks to the overuse of sugar. Not at Ladybug Latte. This blended espresso drink is not overly sweet but still packs a great pumpkin and coffee punch. Ladybug Latte

culinary spotlight

off the deck hot sauce + flannel fizz

T

hough the delicate taste buds of our region are often made fun of (no, ketchup is not spicy), I know there are many of us that find joy dipping into the complex flavors and adventurous world of heat. I will admit, I was not always on the spice train. I grew up eating lots of foods baked in cream-ofwhatever-soup but thankfully the folks at Off The Deck Hot Sauce have helped me stretch my spice loving wings. Off the Deck is a local ‘pepper first’ hot sauce company started right here in Fargo. This means you can find a range of sauces from hot to really hot (as in sweat beads off your forehead before it even hits your lips). The founders of Off The Deck Hot Sauce, Jeremiah and Rachel Utecht, take great care and pride in creating products that are not only incredibly versatile in their culinary uses, but also very thoughtfully designed, from

the flavors in the bottle to the crisp label wrapping around it. In 2015, Off The Deck Hot Sauce launched their fermented sauces at local farmers markets. What started as a couple of pounds of habanero peppers and a deep dive into food fermentation led to the array of hot sauces you can now find on local store shelves throughout the area, featured at various restaurants and for sale every Saturday of the Red River Market. The Utechts amaze me with their dedication to their brand and mission. Their innovation goes beyond the flavor profiles of their products. A true emphasis is put on locally sourced ingredients with 100 percent of the chili peppers used in their hot sauce being grown within 50 miles of the FM area! That, my friends, is no small feat. Being a zero-waste company is no easy task but these two

creatively make use of their handselected ingredients to bring other products to the market such as zug-zug, spreadable hot sauce, rhubarb butter and more, so that their food waste is at an absolute minimum. Rachel and Jeremiah are some of the most dedicated business owners I have ever met. They work endless hours, on top of their full-time jobs, to share their love for crafting high quality, small-batch products. You can catch their late-night post-production videos online where they share what they’ve been up to and you get a glimpse of partners in life and business, building their story. Does thinking about hot sauce make you sweat? No worries. The Utechts have got you covered with their other delightful business, Flannel Fizz. Curating freshly made sodas while focusing on locally


sourced, quality ingredients. Their sodas are creative takes on your classic flavors, plus combinations that you may never think of but meld perfectly in the world of refreshing, bubbly beverages. Thirsty? You can find Flannel Fizz at the Red River Market and soon to be on tap in local breweries. Back in the day, two photographers met. They ended up getting married and made Fargo their home. They decided to start a fermented hot sauce business together and one new year’s eve, they added a craft soda business into the mix. Through the support of their wonderful local-focused customers, a grand community of farmers, business collaborations and their unending drive, we are the fortunate recipients of their creative endeavors and look forward to seeing what other fantastic and thoughtful things they have in the works.

Just a Few of the Many Great Uses for

Off The Deck Hot Sauce

• Sprinkle some on your eggs or a dash in your hollandaise sauce • Eat it straight up with some chips! • Add to your alfredo sauce for a little extra something • Brew into your next batch of beer or cider • Kick up your Tzatziki game • Gift a bottle to a friend • Stir into your soup to kick it up a notch • Add to marinade or rub on meat before smoking • Blend with your favorite condiment (make ketchup actually spicy!) • Step up your stir fry game with a dash...or two or three


look good, feel good

Firefighter Michael Hawley sporting the department’s new helmets with visors.

...and safe

T

here’s an old adage: look good, feel good. Few things inspire confidence as much as a new pair of shoes or a jacket that fits just right. Quality clothing can make a major difference. The same can be said about the gear relied upon by the Fargo Fire Department during every call.

When one thinks of stylish, a fully-outfitted fire crew might not be the immediate idea coming to mind. But have you ever wondered what goes into a firefighter’s uniform? There’s much more to it than meets the eye.

The Fargo Fire Department’s firefighters are split into three shifts: an “A” shift, a “B” and a “C.” Each shift lasts for 24 hours before another one takes over. During a shift, firefighters must wear an approved shirt and navy pants. When out in public, they will typically wear a light blue buttonup shirt, except for Battalion Chiefs, Assistant Chiefs, the Fire Marshal and the Chief, who all wear white shirts.

Each firefighter has specialized clothes and equipment to utilize for emergency situations. This equipment is known as turnout gear, or “bunker gear.” It includes heavy-duty leather boots, protective bunker pants, a hood to guard the ears and neck, gloves, a multi-layer jacket, a lightweight helmet and an air pack known as an SCBA. Fargo’s on-shift firefighters manage to put all of this on and get in a truck within 90 seconds of an emergency call. Uber-fast response times and preparedness have helped the department maintain class-one Public Protection Classification from the ISO (Insurance Services Office). This is


the best possible rating a fire department can receive, and can potentially help lower homeowners’ insurance rates. In the last decade, calls for service have increased by more than 160 percent for the department. From head-to-toe, each piece of equipment is optimized to help the 120 full-time members of the Fargo Fire Department meet the demands of a growing community. For instance, the department issues leather boots with steel toes and shank plates to provide puncture protection for the bottom of our firefighters’ feet. Bunker pants provide firefighters’ legs additional protection. They are made with heat-resistant materials and consist of two layers. The outer layer provides cut resistance and protection from other hazards as firefighters respond to traffic accidents and fire-related emergencies. The inner layer, or “thermal layer” which provides thermal protection as well as heat stress reduction. Bunker pants also feature large pockets which firefighters use to hold tools and other helpful items. Jackets are made of the same material as bunker pants, protection as FFD crews respond to calls 365 days a year. The jacket also provides much-needed insulation during the frigid winter months. The Department recently invested in new helmets, opting for lighter units, which sit more comfortably on firefighters’ heads. Lighter helmets are appreciated, as the rest of the turnout gear can weigh around 50 pounds. The helmets provide protection from falling debris and prevent unnecessary knocks to the head in tight spaces. The new helmets also have built-in visors, which can be deployed by pressing them. The visors provide eye protection from debris. The air packs used by the fire department are also referred to as SCBAs or selfcontained breathing apparatuses. These

provide crews with clean air and are one of the most important pieces of equipment firefighters utilize in an emergency. These units protect the firefighter from the plethora of carcinogenic smokes emitted in home and commercial fires. Each piece of equipment used by the department must meet National Fire Protection Association standards. These standards establish levels of protection from heat, pathogens and other hazards firefighters would come across. Each firefighter has two sets of gear: a frontline set, and a backup set. A set of turnout gear typically lasts six to seven years as frontline gear, and when new gear is purchased it becomes a backup set. Gear is thoroughly washed after every single fire. While the frontline gear is washed the backup gear is used. With all of the specialized equipment needed, a set of turnout gear costs around $3,000. The City of Fargo invests in 12 to 24 new sets of gear annually to keep firefighters properly protected and ready to respond to calls for service. The Fargo Fire Department recognizes its employees must be equipped with modern, effective equipment to maintain a standard of excellence. The Fargo Fire Department is also recognized by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) as an internationally-accredited agency. Continuing to properly equip the highlytrained, skilled firefighters of the Fargo Fire Department is important to City leaders in ensuring the City meets the needs of its citizens every day. While a new pair of shoes or a jacket that fits just right might instill a confidence boost, the commitment to state-of-the-art gear for the Fargo Fire Department should afford residents with a boost of confidence in our ability to protect you when you need us.

How To Help

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley

W

atching your child experience medical procedures is difficult, and doing so away from the comforts of home make it even more difficult. While children receive treatments, Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley (RMHC) keeps families together and provides them the comforts of home. Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley’s 17-bedroom facility has served over 350 families in 2019 thus far. RMHC of the Red River Valley has been proudly serving Fargo since 1982. Since then, they have seen an increase in the medical services the community provides and therefore an increase in demand for their “home away from home.” As needs continued to grow, in May 2018, they opened a new location east of Sanford Hospital with many more amenities, ample accessibility, increased privacy and safety. “Our House is much more than simply a place to stay. We strive to provide a secure place where additional strength and stability is received from a comfortable

room, amenities of home and other families in similar situations to connect with,” said Johnsrud. Most recently, they opened North Dakota’s first Ronald McDonald Family Room at Essentia Health on 32nd Avenue in Fargo. The space here serves as a respite for families at Essentia Health Hospital. Even if only for a few moments, this space provides an area for family members to take a shower, have a quick break or grab some snacks, just steps away from their child. “Our community is so lucky to have the amazing medical facilities that we do. Many people have to travel long distances to receive the critical-care that is provided right here in our community! Without the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley there may be kids that do not receive the care they need,” said Johnsrud. “RMHC bridges access to top medical care, provides emotional and physical support, enhances a child’s hospital experience, and improves a family’s coping and cohesion.”
