Throughout the year, the Live Oak Fire Department (LOFD) and the Live Oak Professional Fire Fighter’s Association (LOPFFA) could be found assisting citizens of Live Oak and raising money for Funds that will make charitable donations to Employees that work for the City of Live Oak. Recently the LOPFFA announced a merchandise sale of Pink T-Shirts that will go into a Cancer Fund to make charitable donations.
This past November marked the beginning of No Shave November “Movember” to bring awareness to Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Men’s Suicide. The “Movember Foundation” is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. To mark the occasion, the Live Oak Fire Fighters and Therapist from Advanced Rehab & Healthcare of Live Oak joined together for a friendly competition with a freshly shaven face to begin the 30 day period of not shaving for the cause. On November 30th, they gathered once again to see who had grown the most facial hair. This year’s winner was Lt. Chris Everett. We would like to thank the staff at Advanced Rehab & Healthcare for their coordination and participation in this event with our Firefighters for a great cause and making a difference for men’s health in our community.
On January 27th 2018 the LOPFFA and LOFD will hold a barbecue plate sale with proceeds going towards assisting the Galindo Family with recent medical expenses. As a 31 year veteran of the Fire Department, Assistant Fire Chief Gerry Galindo was diagnosed with kidney cancer in later months of 2013. Tickets can be purchased at the Live Oak Fire Department, 8001 Shin Oak Drive or from any Live Oak Firefighter. The meal will include Brisket and Sausage with potato salad and green beans as well as all the fixings. Tickets are $10.00 each and will be available for drive thru pick-up at the Live Oak Fire Station Apparatus Bays at 8001 Shin Oak Drive from 11am-4pm. While there is no set goal for the plate and t-shirt sale, all purchases and donations will be appreciated. For ticket information, call the Live Oak Fire Department at 210-653-9140, ext. 2198.
With the “No Home Should Be Alone” project, LOFD believes smoke detectors have been a key factor in the prevention of fire-related deaths throughout the years. If you have questions about the program or would like to participate in the program, contact the LOFD at 210-653-9140, ext. 2198.
