Local 2819 Representing Goodwill

Recently, a special request from WSCFF President Dennis Lawson was distributed statewide. Peruvian Consul General Velasquezl has reached out to us to rally support for the Fire Service in his country. After severe rain storms, they are in crisis mode, dealing with conditions compared to Hurricane Katrina - worse even. During the weekend, a good-will drive commenced at a Seattle based church and a 40 foot Conex box was packed with commodities and firefighter equipment. 

Seen here is Sister Kara Putnam, a member of Local 2819, delivering 30 pairs of bunker pants and 7 bunker coats that have been surplused by Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue to the effort.

Hockey Night

For the third year running, the Kitsap Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund has partnered with the Bremerton Ice Arena and will be hosting Fire & Ice night, featuring the West Sound Warriors as they go head to head against the Seattle Ravens.

Normally, the Local 2819 Honor Guard presents colors but due to Sunday's Jimmy Hendryx Memorial Service, will be unable to participate.

Still, Saint Florian IPA will be served, three hockey jerseys will be auctioned, and the owners have pledged all proceeds to benefit the Hendryx Family.

Please try to make this fun, family event. Tickets are sold at the door.

The game begins at 7:30pm this Saturday, January 28th.

Jimmy Hendryx Memorial

It is with great sorrow that the WSCFF and Bremerton Fire Fighters IAFF Local 437 announce the line of duty death of firefighter/paramedic James Hendryx.
Brother Hendryx, 47, passed away Tuesday, January 17, 2017, from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This is the first line of duty death in the 114 year history of the Bremerton Fire Department.
Jimmy was an avid bagpiper and was a pipe major in the Puget Sound Firefighters Pipes and Drums. He had an infectious smile and was broadly known, well liked and a true brother to the firefighting community.
The WSCFF would like to thank Brother Hendryx for his years of service. Many will remember that he was the voice for the Power Through Participation videos.
Jimmy is survived by his wife, young son and daughter.

Retirement Tools

For those thinking of retirement, we have an assortment of tools designed to assist you with making hard decisions. The LEOFF II board recently released the Retirement Checklist document to outline the minimum number of considerations that should be addressed before pulling that trigger. 

Anyone considering retirement in the next five years will benefit from reviewing it. It can be found HERE

Other tools available include two documents found in our Downloads page.

These are a LEOFF II Retirement calculator that helps determine dates and payout. The second is a calculator designed to assist members to decide on their survivor options by comparing the cost of life insurance against the reduction in spouse survivor options.
