Fire Dept - Open House (photo essay)

The Fire Dept held its annual Open House on Sunday at Station #2 on King St. I stopped by just before noon and Chief Gary McCarragher said that it had been real busy since it first opened at 10:00 AM.

The Fire Dept has an equipment rotation practice where a vehicle will serve on the front line for some number of years and then move to a 'reserve' status. In reserve status it is put into service if repairs are needed on the front line equipment. This enables the Fire Dept to maintain a high level of service at all times.
