Ste Gen FD was on hand last week to help with the adult Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training held at the Ste. Genevieve County Health Department. CERT educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Ste Genevieve Fire Department in conjunction with the City of Ste Genevieve had the pleasure of helping to make Triston’s ( https://www.facebook.com/prayersfortriston ) Make-A-Wish ( https://www.facebook.com/MakeAWishMO ) dream come true. We had a great time helping with the pool, bringing out the fire trucks with lights and sirens, and making Triston an Honorary Fire Fighter for going above and beyond the call of duty! You can also see a few videos here: https://www.facebook.com/prayersfortriston/videos/1120250184700456/ and here: https://youtu.be/eAGQ4W74PXI Thank you for everyone who put in the hard work to make a difference in his life.

Ste Gen FD was on hand to land the Air Evac helicopter over the weekend for the Roll for the Patrol benefit at the American Legion post 150 in Ste Genevieve, MO.
The Missouri Association of State Troopers Emergency Relief Society “The MASTERS” was formed in 1979 for the purpose of establishing an entirely voluntary benevolent fund for the financial aid of a trooper’s immediate surviving family member (wife or husband) and children if he or she is killed in the line of duty. The surviving family member is paid immediately a certain sum of money to help with their unexpected short-term expenses. Directors of The MASTERS from that area take the troopers’ family under their protective guidance, and from this fund help solve their financial problems.
The MASTERS assists with funeral expenses, loan payments, mortgage payments and immediate bills. It also provides scholarships for the officer’s dependent children and the surviving spouse.
Ste Gen FD was on hand to provide kids with information and fun on Saturday March 19th at the SGCC for the Mochip Child ID children’s identification program. The program is sponsored by The Missouri Masonic Children’s Foundation and Masonic Saline Lodge No. 226 of St. Mary. The free program provides families with a comprehensive child ID kit — digital photographs, digital fingerprints, dental bite impressions, laminated ID cards, child information and emergency contacts — in the event a child goes missing or is abducted.
Ste Gen FD had a great time meeting with kids and parents and thanks the community for its continued support.
