Griffin Fire Department to Celebrate 50th Anniversary on September 8

The Griffin Fire Department was formed on September 11, 1962. The name Griffin comes from Judge Griffin, who donated land for a new school after the old Schneider’s Prairie Schoolhouse burned to the ground in the summer of 1926.

The Griffin Fire Department covers approximately the same area as the Griffin School District. The department patch pictures a griffin (a mythical beast who rises from the ashes) holding a hose and axe.

The Griffin Fire Department invites all to join their 50 year anniversary celebration, and meet their members. They will have refreshments, fire extinguisher demo, burn prop demo, vehicle extrication demo, blood pressure checks, CPR demo, 9v replacement batteries for smoke detectors, smoke detectors, smoke house for kids, address signs, and fire extinguishers. The Washington State Patrol, Thurston County Sheriffs Dept., Medic One, and Airlift NW will be joining the fire department to meet and answer your questions.
