The fire department participates in many events in our local community. Such events include, but are not limited to, the annual Soap Box Derby, Little League Parade, Halloween Haunted House, Memorial Day Ceremonies, and the very popular Village Christmas in the Place of Nettles. In addition to these events, we also support many non-profit organizations with help at various times and even financial contributions to some.
Even these efforts do not stop us from doing more. We have held numerous training sessions where we have invited the public to attend. Such topics as CPR, First Aid, Driver's Safety and others have proven to be useful in our community. Many of these programs are put on by and in co-ordination with our public education committee. We look at each event as its own opportunity to change. Even during our annual Santa visit, we collect food for those in need and donate it to the local food pantry.
