Did you know, in January 1947, (after the fire district was formed in July of 1946), the department's first engine was delivered? Soon after, the department began answering calls for service. 2022 marks 75 years of service for the department. Unit One, the department’s antique, responded to those first calls for service. We're fortunate to still own this piece of our department's history! ... See MoreSee Less
