Lakeville Newsletter 2015


Dear Residents and Friends of Lakeville,
      It is with great honor that I represent you as the President of the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department Board of Directors.  I am a lifelong resident of this great county and somewhat of a new kid on the block with 10 years as a resident on Lakeville Highway. What an exciting year for me to be asked to serve as Vice President and then, shortly after, to trade hats for President.
      This has been a great year of accomplishment!  We have new enthusiastic board members.  And the community’s generosity is always outstanding, as in the example of a community member donating computer software and a lap top, so we can import years of data for our fire department. County Fire has furnished us with surplus equipment.  And also, in October, we had a successful pancake breakfast fundraiser.  Thank you to all our volunteers and donors! 
      Our most exciting accomplishment is WINNING the First Place award in the “Swift Water” Maritime/Water Rescue class competition during the Urban Shield 2014 Exercise.  Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department was the only VOLUNTEER team to participate.  Congratulations to the Firefighters who proudly represented our department and community.
      Please take a moment to review this newsletter to learn more about our year of activities & service calls, our board members, our finances, and a roster of a great crew of volunteer firefighters. We also have some useful tips on what to do in an emergency and how to keep you and your family safe.
      In addition to serving the property owners and residents of Lakeville Community, we also serve all who travel through our area, the travelers of all the corridors, airways, and waterways who might come into harm’s way. Not to mention the large events held at the Sonoma Raceway that brings tens of thousands of people to our community. This creates quite a heavy traffic area with complex rescue challenges along with firefighter responsibilities.
      I would also like to introduce you to our 2015 Board of Directors. Each member brings his/her talents to the board to serve you and the Lakeville community. Their backgrounds, like our community, represent diverse industries and ranching businesses.  Each member has donated countless hours of service.  
      It is important to remember that the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department depends on donations from residents and friends like you to provide emergency services to our community. Your continued financial support of our department is crucial to the safety of the community. In the past we have asked for specific donations related to the size of your property,  with homeowners asked to donated at least $80 and larger operations donating $250 or more. Please take time to donate by using the self addressed donation envelope included with this newsletter. I also want to remind you that you can make a donation on the department website online at www.lakeville-fire.com. I want to assure you that the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department Board takes their responsibilities very seriously and we will make sure that each and every dollar you donate, will be utilized wisely and to its maximum potential.
      I ENCOURAGE YOU, WHEN YOU SEE ONE OF OUR Lakeville Volunteer Firefighters, or Board Members, to take a moment and thank them for donating their time to protect you, your family and your property strictly on a volunteer basis.
      Best Regards, Angela DeCarli
