Company History

In January, we purchased a new dunk tank from A-1 at a cost of $1,200.00. The building renovations are underway again. On May 17th, the perk and probe for the new septic system is done. On May 29th the company members started on the new roof. In August, we had a ground rod installed for lightning protection. This was done after the station was struck by lightning. The lightning strike took out the phone system, TV and many fluorescent light ballasts. In the summer months, the truck committee was busy meeting with several manufacturers and putting together a specification for a new tanker. This tanker would replace the old 1974 Howe tanker. In September, we finished the work on the roof, it was completed with help from many fire company members. In October, the new sand mound septic system was completed. We also had our wells hydraulically fractured to improve their water producing capability.
