Our Volunteeers

It's a wet, dark desolate evening.  Rain, thunder and lightening flashing across the steely gray sky, stopping, a mist hanging in the air in an almost suffocating manner.  At just before midnight the wail of our siren, and just scant minutes later you see one, two and then three vehicles pulling up in front of the firehouse, and moments later the ambulance making a right onto Main Street and heading off into the night to provide aid and comfort to one of our citizens in need.  

We are lucky to have such noble citizens in our community, lucky to have such a great volunteer fire and ambulance service in our small hamlet.  So, on this stormy night, a special shout out to our VOLUNTEERS.
