The firefighters of the Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District took over the Sisters Rodeo Grounds on Saturday, March 8, to display fire and emergency equipment to the residents and visitors of the community.

The public was invited as fire equipment from Bend, Crooked River Ranch, Sisters, and Cloverdale were displayed. Also on display was the marine unit from the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, Life Flight and AirLink helicopters, and BrightSide Animal Center with adoptable animals.

Smiles abounded as kids, big and little, took the opportunity to climb on the shiny red trucks, helicopters, and other displayed equipment. Several door-prizes were awarded with donations from Sisters Cascade of Gifts, Sisters Mainline Station, and Sisters Market. The volunteers also ran a 50/50 raffle, in which Ginnie Patskowski of Sisters won the prize of $100.

Volunteers demonstrated the extrication of a trapped patient from a vehicle by cutting the roof and doors off a car. Later the car was set on fire and the volunteers demonstrated how they would go about extinguishing that fire.

The volunteers thanked the Sisters Rodeo Association for the use of their facility, and Sara Marcus, this year's Miss Rodeo Oregon, for helping with the door-prize drawing.

This event was organized by the Cloverdale Volunteer Fire Fighters Association to thank the community for all of its help throughout the years as they complete their 50th year of service. Volunteers thank local residents and visitors for their support and look forward to serving into the future.
