It is once again time to come together and celebrate our current and past retirees at our annual "Retirement Social." This year we are honoring Brothers Greg Miller, Joseph Repar and Toby Schultz on October 2, 2014 at 7:30 PM, Silver City Restaurant.
Bring your stories, pictures and memories to share. Spouses encouraged to attend. Appetizers and beverages will be provided with a special presentation to follow.
Texting and driving is an epidemic sweeping our nation and your community is not immune. With an average of 3,000 deaths per year, it’s time to put an end to distracted driving.
As fire fighters, it is our responsibility to keep the community safe and we see texting and driving as one of the most preventable risks across the nation today. The #JustifyIt effort is designed to educate the community on the dangers of texting and driving, the distractions it creates and the horrible damage we’ve seen it cause, based on our experience as fire fighters responding to accidents.
