Thanks for the bear necessities

stuffed animals by Steve Smith, Fire Chief, W.F.L.S.D.
Recently, our fire district received many stuffed animals from individuals, businesses, and chartered groups, such as Preceptor Alpha Zeta. These precious donations are given by fire department members to injured or traumatized victims during emergency calls. You might think that this applies only to small children, but some of the duty crews have shared stories of times that these stuffed animals have comforted people of all ages.
   As Chief of Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District, thank you to all who have donated these gifts for others. This truly represents the many caring citizens we have in our community.
