Winter Operations – January 2024

Not only do we respond to those in need, we need to have items on hand for operations during these events.  Members not only practiced winter response with the ARGO and other equipment, stretching a line for house fires when driveways are not plowed, but also what is needed prior to an Emergency Event.
