Friday night street dance
The Churchill County Volunteer Fire Department, along with the Federal Fire Department at Naval Air Station Fallon, are hosting a street food party on Carson Street.
The May 13 dance, which is free and open to the public, will take place on North Carson Street. Henning said families are welcome and he hopes for a strong turnout from area residents and visitors.
Dancing and other activities are scheduled from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Disc jockey Todd Moretto will provide the music and firefighters will serve the food. A three-point sandwich with fries and a pickle will cost $10, and a hot dog, fries and a pickle will cost $5. In addition to soft drinks, Henning said firefighters will also serve alcohol. NAS Fallon firefighters will bring their ice cream maker.
In addition to food and dancing, NAS Fallon firefighters will be bringing their fire training trailer.
Along with the Friday night fun, the fire department is holding a raffle with each ticket costing $20. The raffle prizes are a Colt AR15 5.56mm with 500 rounds; a 19 gen 9mm Glock with 250 rounds; and a Ruger Wrangler .22lr SA revolver with 100 rounds.

CC Democrats
Churchill County Democrats will hold their regular monthly meeting on Thursday, May 12 at the Churchill County Administrative Complex, at the corner of North Taylor and A Streets, in Room 136.
They will plan their summer picnic and vote on their current platform. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

Fire hydrant tests
The Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department will be testing fire hydrants in the town of Fallon during the evenings until May 13.
This annual test is important to ensure the system is working properly and is one of many requirements the fire department must meet in order to maintain its ISO Class 1 rating. This rating can help reduce insurance premiums that the owners pay.
During this period of peak water demand analysis in the event of a fire, it is common for water consumers to experience discoloration of the water. This discoloration occurs due to abnormally high flow rates in the piping system which can stir up small amounts of natural sediment.
Remember that although the water may be discolored, it has been properly treated and is completely safe. If the water is heavily discolored, you can temporarily refrain from drinking from the tap or washing your clothes.

Meningococcal vaccines
The Nevada Legislature has passed a NEW LAW – if your student is an incoming senior, they must have the meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine BEFORE they can start school in the fall. This means that every current Grade 11 student must have this vaccine before they can start Grade 12. This does not apply to any other rank.
Parents can get this vaccine (MCV4) at their doctor’s office, pharmacy or community health nurse (appointments with the community health nurse should be made in advance as hours are limited ). Once your child has received the vaccine, please notify CCHS School Nurse Adonna Crowley at [email protected] or call her at 775-423-2181 ext. 4124 with the date of administration of the vaccine. For more information, please contact Adonna or the school’s head nurse Stefanie Utz at 775-423-3463.

To be eligible for the second booster, you must have completed the primary three-dose vaccine series.

• Certain immunocompromised people, including people 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised and who are four months away from their first booster;
• People aged 50 and over who received an initial booster dose at least four months ago and who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised;
• Adults (18-49 years) who received a primary vaccine and a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least four months ago.
