In Memorium

 

We honor the men and women of the fire company and first aid squad who have devoted their time, their friendship and their leadership to the people of our community.  For the past 90 years, members have put this organization in front of everything, at times even their families.

 

"Firemen never die, they just burn forever in the hearts of the people whose lives they saved."

    Fireman's Prayer

     

    Give me the strength to save some life,

    Whatever be its age.

    Help me embrace a little child,

    Before it is too late;

    Or save an older person from,

    The horror of that fate.

    Enable me to be alert,

    And hear the weakest shout,

    And quickly and efficiently,

    To put the fire out.

    I want to fill my calling and,

    To give the best in me;

    To guard my every neighbor and,

    Protect his property.

    And if, according to your will I have to give my life;

    Please bless with your protecting hand,

    My children and my wife.
