Your donation plays a vital role in protecting and serving our community.

The Fire Company has a large two sided sign located at Station #3 on Moe Rd. The sign has a yellow background and is brightly back lit at night. The letters used for the messages are either black or red in color. The sign is used to display messages to the community. The main goal of the sign board is to educate the community about fire prevention, and to hopefully make the community a little safer. We have a group of individuals designated to maintaining the messages. They attempt to rotate the messages on a weekly basis.

All messages are categorized on this page. You may feel free to use any of the messages on this page. We ask that if you use one of the messages that you e-mail us a fire safety and prevention message that we may use on our sign.
