18 RUNS IN THE LAST 5 DAYS..... Before we close out 2017 I would just like to commend our 2nd Alarmers who in the past week have put in some long enduring hours in some of the coldest temperatures in many years. Yes this is the holiday week and as you can see from below that fires and our PFD PPD responders do not take a holiday. Our 2nd Alarmers are there to provide any comfort so they can perform their job easier and get back to the station to clean up and get some rest especially after battling a fire or being out in frigid temperatures for any length of time.This is a recap on what we responded to since Christmas to ensure they can work comfortably at emergency scenes.STAY SAFE EVERYONE.....
