Serving with Compassion

 

Sandy Valley Volunteer Fire Department is located in the Mesquite Valley on the state line of Nevada and California, encompassing both states and three counties: Clark, Inyo and San Bernardino. With a population of 2,000 and an area of 56 square miles, not including the surrounding BLM land, this 10-member department has a lot of territory to cover. The town, housing over 1,000 households, does not have doctors, clinics, hospitals or even fire hydrants. The closest assisting resources are 50 miles away with at least a 30 minute ETA. Even the helicopter is a 19 minute ETA. The volunteer department is equipped with an engine, squad, tender, and an ambulance. The community relies on the department’s training to protect them as well as care for them. None of the volunteers receive monetary benefits, not even the chief. Department members do not stop there. They can be seen at the annual Easter Egg Hunt, throwing plastic eggs and entertaining the children before letting them free. Members even participate in donating to fundraising events in other rural areas. The chief goes to the Citizens Advisory Council Meetings each month to give a department report even though it is not required. The department supports different fundraisers throughout the community. Most of all firefighters support the Pre-K-12 school. Every year the department provides scholarships for high school seniors in the community. In February, for the past 13 years, members have put on a free public safety event with a pancake breakfast to raise money, just to give it back to the other community organizations for Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving or just because. In May/June, for the past five years, members have put on a free shot clinic and sport physical clinic for the community youth so they do not have to drive to the city and pay money. During both events, they sponsor a blood drive with United Blood Services. Sandy Valley volunteers are the best at showing the community what collaboration is all about.
