2014 Honda RancherSo, do you feel lucky?

You should!  We are so fortunate to have a great Fire and EMS Volunteer department here in Seldovia!  In the last 30 days, we have had 5 emergency calls in Seldovia where our Fire and EMS services were needed.

We are lucky to have such a well-equipped Fire and EMS team, and that is due to a very organized and concerned group who works hard to make sure we have what we need to serve the community of Seldovia.  Living remotely, we are on our own to immediately respond to emergencies and having the right tools, equipment and trained team is essential!  Everything from oxygen (including expensive hazmat transportation to and from Homer) and EpiPens for allergic reactions (that can be up to $350 for two – and which also expire!) to all the supplies that are used in day-to-day operations, like gloves, antiseptic, bandages, ointments, etc. need to be on stock and immediately available to our teams.  It is very expensive to have a functioning, efficient and well-stocked department that is ready to care for all types of emergencies!

To help raise funds, the Seldovia Fire and EMS departments have purchased a brand new Honda Rancher to raffle off on July 5th.  Each ticket is $50.00 and there will only be 300 tickets sold. Once they are all sold out – they will be SOLD OUT.   The value of the 4 wheeler is around $8,000 (Fire and EMS will take care of the withholding taxes incurred on the prize).  The drawing will be held on July 5, 2014 at the Linwood at 6:00pm.  Of course, you do not need to be present to win! Tickets may be purchased at the following locations:

  • City Office
  • City Harbormaster’s Office
  • Seldovia Fuel and Lube
  • KacheYak Trading Post
  • Boardwalk Hotel
  • Linwood Bar and Grill
  • Creationz

If you have ever been served by our Fire and EMS crew, and want to acknowledge the GREAT work they do for us in Seldovia – this is a great way to make a donation – with a chance to win a brand new 4 wheeler!  How fabulous is that?  Their service and skills are invaluable to Seldovia, and my hope is that the tickets will run out far before their deadline, as folks show their support and belief in the importance of having a well-functioning department with updated equipment and supplies.  Thank you in advance for your continued support of our Fire and EMS services here in Seldovia.

If you are feeling the desire to support the effort, but cash is short – you can always VOLUNTEER!  Both teams are always looking for volunteers to help in a variety of capacities to serve our community.
