El Dorado Fire Marshal Joe Haag and fiancé Kristi Cooper were joined in holy matrimony today.
Family and friends gathered to help them celebrate this special day. The Civic Center was transformed into a rustic country setting.
Mason jars were placed at each table setting. Wagon wheels, baling string wrapped wine bottles, and an alter that was decorated beautifully.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Haag!
Innovation, Caring, Contribution, Creativity, Generosity, & Pride – he embodies them all.
His name is Firefighter Caleb Carson.
Caleb’s latest extra special project is a new kitchen table for fire station 2.
For the past months Caleb worked on this project. It hit a little slow down during the time Caleb was taking Advanced Emergency Medical Technician training, but he juggled the project simultaneously with the medical training. And it is finally finished.
The heavy duty table started out as 2 x 6 lumber that was trimmed down, glued, sanded, and varnished. Two custom El Dorado Maltese crosses – one on each side – were sculpted by Caleb’s father.
And then there’s the really cool features. Two retired air packs sit under the table angled towards the table’s center.
This is just one of many special projects this young man has made for the department. El Dorado has some mighty special firefighters.
A pedestrian was struck by a car at the intersection of Central and Emporia.
Firefighters and Medics cared for the injured person.
Injuries were believed to be non-serious. The patient was transported to the hospital.
El Dorado Firefighters assisted Rosalia FD with a structure fire early last evening.
Dispatch sent the message as “A large amount of smoke – exploding and glass breaking.”
The building was storing a large amount of hay.
The building and contents was a total loss.

El Dorado Firefighters had a vehicle fire class scheduled for last evening.
Photographer/Volunteer Chad Wittenberg geared up to join in the evolution.
The evening went on as planned, but was cut just a bit by the hail storm.
All the fire vehicles got undercover before the storm hit.
Great job by all!
