Hey there! Just dropped by to say hello. Not too much going on here. We have our annual open house and company inspection today. This past week we had a 2 story frying pan fire. Kept is confined to the kitchen and the stove. But it was a hot hot and humid night nonetheless. Stay Safe.

Chris! Haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope that things are well. Summer finally arrived here this weekend. We are in the midst of planning our 2nd annual open house/safety fair for the dept. This year we are including a full department inspection complete with everyone in their Class A's that the public is welcome to come and see. Stay Safe.
