Did you MISS our Crab Feed this year?

If so, you missed some awesome MD Steamed Crabs, Corn, Pit Beef, Fruits, Veggies, Music, etc.

Check back at the beginning of 2016 when we post our events list, but you can reserve the 3rd Saturday in July as tentative.

2015 Annual Breathing Apparatus Refresher

This year, firefighters had to, while in full turnout gear and BA, climb a ladder to the second floor of the training tower that was filled with smoke.  Enter the window checking the safety of the floor, begin a room search for victims.  During the search, netting was dropped on you to simulate ceiling collapsing on you and trapping you.  The firefighter then has to properly call for a MAYDAY providing all the correct information for personnel to rescue them.
