A District 7 way of life Larry Hoffman sees community service as a natural fit of firefighters By Mark Reimers news@ferndalerecord.com

   FERNDALE — When people talk about volunteering firefighters, they are usually referring to the men and women who take extra time out of their busy lives to fight fires on the side.    It’s more than that for many members of Whatcom County Fire District 7, however. At least that’s what assistant chief Larry Hoffman sees when he looks at the ranks

Lynden Tribune | Wednesday, October 2, 2013| Ferndale Record of career and volunteer firefighters.    You see, Hoffman himself has become known as a compulsive volunteer in the Ferndale community. That’s why it surprised no one in August when Hoffman said yes to organizers with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. When asked to “post bail” at a lockup event at Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant, Hoffman set a goal and outraised everyone else in Whatcom County.    “You can say no, but I took it on,” Hoffman said. “It seemed like something I could honestly call and ask money for. It was a great cause and it was an interesting time in ‘jail.’”    Hoffman said his success at the fundraiser was really due to the many responsive people in the community.    The MDA event was just one effort in a long line of things that have marked Hoffman’s schedule over the years. At one point, he served on the board of the Ferndale Boys & Girls Club. Today, he is neckdeep into volunteering with the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce.    “I’ve lived in the Ferndale community all my life,” Hoffman said. “I believe this community has made me who I am to this

day. I look for ways to give back to it.”    Volunteering didn’t always mean the same thing for Hoffman, who began firefighting as a volunteer before getting hired in 1989. He’s definitely happy that he has a little down time now to stay involved.    For local athletes, past and present, Hoffman is known as Coach Hoffman, as he has spent the better part of 30 years working in youth sports.    Hoffman began his coaching duties immediately after graduating from Ferndale High School in 1979. First he worked in hockey in Bellingham before moving on to baseball.    That coaching career started before Hoffman was raising a family. So when he suddenly had a wife and kids, he also had a new reason to keep coaching his kids’ teams.    His next coaching job was six years with Ferndale High School baseball. But when fellow Ferndale coach Sean Linville went to Blaine High School, he asked Hoffman to come on as his assistant.    “I put in my hours, but there’s always someone watching (the station) when I’m out coaching or working with the chamber,” Hoffman said. “At times, it seems like

Local Firefighters I’m constantly on the move. But I’ve always said if I ever slow down I’ll start acting my age.”    Hoffman doesn’t see his community involvement as a solitary thing, noting that many local firefighters try to be responsive to their own community needs.    A great example, Hoffman said, is former Lieutenant Mark Kuhl, who spearheaded fundraising for the veterans memorial in Griffintown Park. Those funds were raised primarily through the District 7 Firefighters Association and Ferndale Volunteer Firefighters Association.    But the giving mentality has also been helped by the relatively high number of local personnel who stick around to serve in their own community.    Getting local kids interested in firefighting has been a goal and success story of the District 7 Cadet program, which now gives kids a chance to explore and volunteer. Some of them go on to get jobs in fire service.    Regardless, having a crew where some are lifetime community members or 30year volunteers helps make District 7 feel like a real hometown group, Hoffman said.

FERNDALE — Whatcom County Fire District 7 offers several services for locals, including: Free American Heart Association “Heartsaver” CPR classes    CPR classes are offered every second Saturday of the month. Call 384-0303 for more information about the Heartsaver class or achieving a certified AHA Heartsavers card. Monthly fire station tours    Would your classroom like to visit local firefighters and paramedics at their stations? District 7 offers station tours that highlight fire preparation and safety, special firefighting equipment and tools, CPR, first aid, and on-hand tours of aid and fire trucks. Call 384-0303 during business hours to schedule a tour. Monthly blood pressure checks    Once a month, District 7 personnel visit the Ferndale Senior Activity Center in Pioneer Park to offer free blood pressure checks. On-the-spot free blood pressure checks are always offered at any manned stations. Larry Hoffman began volunteer firefighting soon after finishing high school. He began his full-time career in 1989.

Smoke Alarm

Safety at Home

Smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.

SAFETY TIPS KKK INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. KKK Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. KKK For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. KKK An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. KKK Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. KKK REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old. Your Source for SAFETY Information

FACTS Roughly two thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.

AND DON’T FORGET… All smoke alarms should be tested at least once a month using the test button.

Fire District 4 seeks voters’ Yes to keep 24-hour emergency response the last few years.    The district saves money working with North Whatcom, but it lacks industry in its tax base, Neal said.    “In recent years, home values have halted and our property tax base is somewhat flat. We have to do more with less,” she said.    This measure has an “emergency medical services” emphasis that reflects the 70 percent of calls that require an ambulance rather than a fire truck, Neal said.    In August 2012, the fire district fell just a few votes short of passing a slightly different measure. It would have raised the tax levy 15 cents per $1,000 property value.

Bellingham-area district shares resources with North Whatcom By Calvin Bratt editor@lyndentribune.com

   WHATCOM — Fire District 4 northeast of Bellingham wants voters’ help maintaining its current level of emergency response.    That is of broader interest because the district is tied into the much larger North Whatcom Fire & Rescue/Fire District 21 through a contract for sharing all administration and staff. Crews rotate within the blended districts.    Right now, the District 4 fire station on Britton Road is able to have crews respond to 911 calls no matter the time of day or night, but that could go away if enough money isn’t available, said district commissioner Mary Beth Neal.    The request on the Nov. 5 ballot is for a permanent tax increase of 30 cents per

$1,000 of property value. The measure needs 60 percent approval to pass.    Currently, the tax rate is about $1.14 per $1,000, raising $1.36 million in 2013, according to the Whatcom County Assessor’s Office website.    “We’re trying to ask just for what we need, not any more,” Neal said.    The district extends from Bellingham city limits north approximately to Smith Road, east to Mission Road and west to the Guide Meridian.    Neal said the sharing of resources and personnel — which started July 1, 2011 — is what gives Fire District 4 the good 24hour emergency response. But that could go back to just 12-hour coverage without additional money.    The two districts, like many others, have benefited from federal Homeland Security grants to strengthen local forces. Yet a condition of that money is to gradually take over funding at the local level as the grants phase out.    Another factor for county fire districts, Neal said, is the extra cost of doing BLS (basic life support) transport — a shift in the Whatcom Medic One system over

Hawley, 18-year incumbent, faces Dean Berkeley for North Whatcom Fire & Rescue commissioner    WHATCOM — One local fire district has a race for fire commissioner in the Nov. 5 election.    Dean Berkeley of Blaine is running against 18-year incumbent commissioner Roger Hawley in Fire District 21, also known as North Whatcom Fire & Rescue Services.    The district stretches across the north county from halfway between Lynden and Everson west to Birch Bay and Blaine and south nearly to Bellingham along Guide Meridian Road. The city of Lynden has its own fire department, however.    Hawley said he believes the district is running pretty smoothly right now. It has progressed beyond squabbles of the past and is “as good as we can be financially,” he said.

   Commissioners’ recent decision to close the Custer and 19th Street-Lynden stations makes sense when looking at other paid stations nearby and volunteer firefighter issues, Hawley said. Also, there are churches and daycare centers and possibly more highway accidents to respond to along the Guide around Laurel, where the Lynden crew transferred to, he said.    Moving from volunteers to paid career firefighters is a trend that’s happening all over, not just here, Hawley said.    He favors passage of a 30-centsper-$1,000 property tax increase in District 4, which would bring the partner district more in line with North Whatcom’s levy. And a full merger with District 4 may lie down the road if voters approve, he said.    “It’s the future. You can’t have 19 separate districts in a county like ours, all doing the same thing with declining tax dollars. It makes sense to work together,” Hawley said.    He said he has not met Berkeley nor seen him at a commissioners’ meeting.    Berkeley did not return a call for comment.    These are other filings for fire commissioner, all without contest, in the Nov. 5 election: District 1 (Everson, Nugents Corner) — Gary Almy District 4 — Mary Beth Neal District 7 ­ (Ferndale area) — Michael Murphy District 8 (Marietta area) — Position 1, Roger Buswell; Position 2, Cheryl Sanders; Position 3, Robert Neher District 14 — RobRoy Graham Jr. District 16 (South Fork Valley) — Brian Knutzen District 17 (Sandy Point) — Michael Burnett Glacier Fire & Rescue — Steve Siekkinen

It’s very important that you take precautions when it comes to fire. Always practice these safety tips: Never play with matches or lighters Do not handle gasoline or other liquids that burn Be careful around stoves, heaters and open fires Do not cook unless an adult is present If smoke is around, stay low to the ground Safety Fire

REMEMBER, if something catches on fire, get help. Call 9-1-1 Kids and adults should work together to form an emergency plan, including an escape route. Don’t forget to practice the plan.

If your clothes catch fire . . . STOP where you are. DROP to the ground. ROLL over and over until the flames are out, covering your face with your hands
