Blink an eye and time flies by...it’s incredibly hard to believe that it’s been 16 years since a lot of our lives were tossed upside down. Our department spent countless days serving our Town along with multiple mutual aid partners. The picture below is a shirt that was designed by one of our members, Michael Flash Max Furman, to commemorate the strength and resilience of our department and Town when faced with a horrific tornado. We continue to serve you proudly and know that we are stronger together. It was amazing to witness the many acts of kindness during that difficult time. Responding to the tornado is vividly etched into so many of our minds and something we’ll never forget. ... See MoreSee Less
