Harmony brings cheer to a 10 year old

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!!!

Fire Prevention Week

Friday, October 10, 2014  During National Fire Prevention Week, October 5 - 11, 2014 attention is focused on promoting fire safety and prevention; however we should practice fire safety all year long. Many potential fire hazards go undetected because people simply do not take steps to fireproof their home. Residents are reminded that good housekeeping along with continued maintenance of household appliances reduces the chance of suffering a fire loss. Also remember to check your home smoke detectors regularly to ensure proper function.
