Lowering the flag to half-mast to honor Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Ben Jenkins who was killed on-duty today.

There's a lot of joking that goes back and forth between LEOs and Firefighters, but at the end of the day, we are all family and this hurts. Please join us in taking a moment of silence to honor our fallen brother.

"47-year-old Sgt. Jenkins was an Elko native who devoted his life to public service and to serving Nevadans. He began working for the Highway Patrol in March 2008 as a Trooper in Jackpot and was promoted to Sergeant in Elko in 2017. Prior to NHP, he was a training officer for the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division, a crew supervisor for the Nevada Division of Forestry, an Assistant Fire Chief for the Spring Creek Volunteer Fire Department, and a veteran of both the Army National Guard and Air National Guard. In 2011, Jenkins received the Nevada Department of Public Safety's highest honor, the Gold Medal of Valor, which is presented to officers who perform an extraordinary act of heroism.

He is survived by his wife, his mother, four children, and five grandchildren."We are devastated to report that Sergeant Ben Jenkins #4196 was killed in the line of duty this morning. Sgt. Jenkins had stopped to assist a motorist on US-93 in the White Pine county area. During this contact, the motorist open fired on Sgt. Ben Jenkins, who was struck and killed. The motorist stole the Sergeant's uniform and fled the scene in Sgt. Jenkins' patrol vehicle. Following a search that lasted several hours, the suspect was located and taken into custody with the assistance of multiple agencies.

#4196, rest easy. We've got the watch from here.

While we are all social distancing, now would be a great time to declutter your home! Keeping your home clutter-free means less time tripping over stuff and more time saving you, your family and your home. Help us help you!
Rain, snow and shine crews on duty.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t rely on luck to keep you safe today. Remember, don’t drink and drive and have a designated driver or call a sober driver to take you home! Party safe! We are always here if you need us, but we don’t want to have to see you tonight.

March is National Healthy Eating Month. Firefighters use a lot of energy so eating healthy is important to fueling our bodies so we can live longer healthier lives. Here are some ways we look at nutrition. How do you manage a healthy diet?
Make it an annual practice to change your smoke alarm batteries when you change your clocks so they never run out of juice!
We received the below message from the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this week regarding this weekend's Firefighter Stair Climb that was to take place in Seattle. We understand why the event was postponed, and we appreciate LLS looking out for everyone's safety. The good news is ALL of the $31,000+ the community donated still goes to LLS. None of it goes towards the cost to get us there - we pay for that privilege out of our own pockets, and for the most part, we are able to get refunds on those costs. With that said, our team is still extremely bummed that the event has been postponed for many reasons. Of course we are disappointed because we look forward to this event every year. We trained hard for months, and enjoy seeing the friends we've made from other agencies in different states, as well as making new friends and new memories. But above all, we are disappointed because we wanted to honor and celebrate YOU and your generosity to help others in the fight for their lives. This amazing community rallied behind us and helped us not only meet our fundraising goal, but exceed it by over $6,000! You helped our small team of 12 get into the TOP 8 Fundraisers in the WORLD! You helped us make a difference on a bigger level, and we are truly grateful. It's possible that this event will be rescheduled to later this year. We will make sure to keep you all updated. Either way, we look forward to next year's climb and your continued support. - East Fork Professional Firefighters Stair Climb Team
Firefighters must be able to exit multistory structures in emergency situations. Rope systems and other techniques are practiced for these scenarios.
Did you know that two-thirds of home fire deaths are from broken smoke alarms? With daylight savings around the corner, it's a great opportunity to check your smoke alarms when you change your clocks on March 8.
