**MCFD1 Announces Firefighter Promotion**

This morning at 0700 at our Middle Grove Station, Marion County Fire District No. 1 Fire Chief, Terry Riley, presented Paramedic Ashley Yukich with her new badge and helmet, promoting her to Firefighter/Paramedic on C-Shift.

Firefighter Yukich was originally a volunteer firefighter starting in 2012. Later, in 2013, she was hired by MCFD1 as a Single-Role Paramedic. In this role she provided advanced life support care on one of the district's ambulances. In the meantime, Firefighter Yukich participated in our Firefighter Entrance Exam testing process and was placed on our eligibility list for future vacancies. This morning, three years after being hired, Firefighter Yukich was able to finally realize her firefighter aspirations!

Not surprisingly, success is no stranger around Firefighter Yukich. She is a graduate of both the Chemeketa Fire Science and Paramedic programs, earning Associates Degrees in both programs. She has also served 6 1/2 years in the 68 Whiskey Division as a Medic in the Oregon Army National Guard. In addition to her firefighter duties, Ashley also serves the district as an EMS Durable Supply Coordinator, managing and maintaining many of the district's medical supply components.

Chief Wineman, Firefighter Yukich's Battalion Chief, stated "We are extremely fortunate to have such a high caliber employee here at MCFD1. We are very proud of her accomplishments!".

Congratulations, Firefighter Yukich!

Our partners at the Marion County Sheriff's Office are launching a summer driving campaign. See the link to their page. This also serves as a great back to school reminder, given the risks with distracted driving!

Please...please...please drive safely! Put your phones away while driving. Please do your part to make our roads more safe!

Have a great rest of your week and coming weekend!!

Sheriff’s Office Launches Summer Driving Campaign Last Friday the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Team launched two separate driving campaigns focused to create a safe traveling experience for our visitors and residence. Beginning August 19th and ending September 5th deputies will be working our roadways focusing on impaired and distracted driving. Our partners at the Oregon Department of transportation have offered eleven tips to “ditch the distractions.” 1. Turn it off and stow it. Turn your phone off or switch it to silent mode before you get in the car. Then stow it away so that it's out of reach. 2. Spread the word. Record a message on your phone that tells callers you're driving and will get back to them when you're off the road, or sign up for a service that offers this feature. 3. Install an app. Apps can help you avoid texting while driving. Go to your app store and search for "distracted driving." 4. Pull over. If you need to make a call, pull over to a safe area first. 5. Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call or respond to a text for you. 6. X the text. Don't ever text and drive, browse online or read your email while driving. It's dangerous and against the law in most states. Even voice-to-text isn't risk-free. 7. Know the law. Familiarize yourself with state and local laws before you get in the car. Oregon prohibits the use of hand-held cell phones in addition to texting. 8. Prepare. If using a GPS device, enter your destination before you start to drive. If you prefer a map or written directions, review them in advance. If you need help while driving, ask a passenger to assist you or pull over to a safe location to change your GPS or review your map/directions. 9. Secure your pets. Unsecured pets can be a big distraction in the car. 10. Mind the kids. Pull over to a safe place to address situations involving children in the car. 11. Focus on driving. Multi-tasking behind the wheel is dangerous. Refrain from eating, drinking, reading, grooming, smoking, and any other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road. The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind our motorist to drive safe and sober, extra patrols are made possible by grants through the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
