"Not all hero's wear capes"

In this amazing photo, you see Past Chief Francis Pratt and his grandchild on September 11th. 2017.  Fire fighting has a long tradition of family involvement, and this is an example of why.  When a family member shares his accomplishments with love and enthusiasm, it gaps generations, inspire hopes and dreams, as well as create hero's and goals.


This is our new Ladder 127, it was placed in service today 9/13/2017, and will help provide the best possible fire/rescue service we can provide.  Thank you to our community for your continued support.
