Thank You...

Posted on November 1, 2009

We would like to thank all of the folks that came to visit the 2009 Haunted Forest. We appreciate all who dared to enter whether they are nearby neighbors or those that drove long distances. The weather was not the best this year but we still had a tremendous turnout. This year’s forest will not soon be forgotten.

Not only is thanks due to those that went through the forest, but the event itself would not have been what it was without those that donated their time. Many of the participants were not even members of the department and that generosity is greatly appreciated.

We truly hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and we hope to see all of our friends again soon.

Coleman's Lake Rd. Fire

Posted on November 19, 2009

Company 4 responded to a structure fire on Coleman’s Lake Road to assist Companies 2 and 1. Unfortunately, the fire had progressed too far upon arrival to save the home. But, on the positive side the fire was not very hot for extinguishment activities and nobody was in the home at the time of the fire.

The Legend Is Confirmed

Much like a sighting of the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot, many myths are difficult to confirm. However, we have photographic proof of the legendary coffee pot of Truck 4. While on scene at a recent call, cameras were able to document that the stories are true.

I-85 Thanksgiving Day Extrication

Posted on November 27, 2009

Thanksgiving Day was very busy for Company 4 due in part to locally heavy rain. The day ended with a motor vehicle accident northbound at the 61 mile marker. The vehicle uprooted a sizeable cedar tree and required a bit of tree trimming and some minor extrication to remove one of the occupants. Responding were Engine 4, Truck 4, and Medic units 42 and 12.
