Did you Know?

Our firefighters do a lot more than respond to medical and fire related calls. Inspecting local businesses and teaching about fire and life safety is part of their everyday job. They also help residents who cannot purchase or maintain their own smoke alarms. By doing this they are making sure that everyone is being as safe as they can.
