Monday, March 23, 2015   Today we had the pleasure of bringing a smile to someone who needed it. Riley Carty of Westville, a 10-year-old who suffers from uncontrollable epilepsy. Carty will undergo surgery Monday morning and wanted Police, Fire and EMS t-shirts to wear while he recovers. So a few members headed north to Westville with Engine 2313 and paid a visit to deliver some cheer. Great Job!!!
