Lawmaker Praises Firefighters

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Sanders today praised local officials and firefighters for their work fighting wildfires that raged across the state Friday.

A task force of multiple Kingfisher County fire departments helped battle the Choctaw and Harrah fires Friday. The Hitchcock Fire Department in Blaine County also contributed firefighters to aid Choctaw and Harrah and the Okarche Fire Department responded to a Goldsby fire.

“I would like to acknowledge and thank the Kingfisher, Hennessey, Cashion, Dover, Big 4, Omega, Loyal, Hitchcock and Okarche firefighters for their service and bravery Friday,” said Sanders, R-Kingfisher. “The Kingfisher County Fire Task Force is one of the best in the state. More than 20 firefighters were sent to fight the Choctaw and Harrah fires. The Okarche firefighters were quick in their response to the Goldsby fire. I think we could have seen a greater fallout from these fires if not for the professionalism and passion of these individuals. I am proud to represent the firefighters in my district at the Capitol. The work they do is so important.”
