Community invited to celebrate retirement of SVFR Battalion Chief Dave Beck this Saturday

July 22, 2020 — Siuslaw Valley Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief Dave Beck is retiring after 40 Years of service to the community of Florence.

In honor of Chief Beck, Siuslaw Valley Fire & Rescue will be hosting a social distance “Drive by Retirement Party” Saturday, July 25, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the west end of the SVFR main station. 

The address of the main station where the event will be held is 2625 Highway 101 in Florence.  Those wishing to celebrate are asked to drive into the Siuslaw Middle School Parking lot (2525 Oak Street) and “stage” behind the SVFR ladder truck. 

Staging will begin approximately around 12:45 p.m. The procession will begin, following the ladder truck east on 26th street, to the west-end parking lot at the main station where Chief Beck will be present to be honored.

SVFR asks that, community during the “party,” community members not park on the front aprons of the fire station so that firefighting apparatus are not obstructed in the event of a call.
