FYI there is a hydrant laying in the grass on 777th Ave across from loves east side entrance.
**PUPDATE - HOME SAFE!!** This lovely lady is missing in your area and we need you to share this flyer! Please do not chase or post sightings on social media. Call the number on this flyer right away with the location and time of sighting!
Still missing in your area please be aware and share
What an awesome group of people doing fantastic job!!
Just a suggestion as a former Firefighter of Minnetonka, MN . We used to have the Boy Scouts shovel out our hydrants in the winter. I guess they got a badge from the Scouts for doing it. You might want to talk to your local Scout leader if you have Scouts there in Albert Lea!
After being a long time critic of the Albert Lea Fire Department and the high costs associated with pensions, salaries and the fire station, I can now sincerely say they are worth every dollar.. If you have ever experienced the fear of losing someone close to you, it is no different after calling 911 because of an overwhelming fear that you are about to lose something that is very near and dear to you and every minute feels like ten while waiting and wishing for a miracle..Then only minutes later you hear the siren and the horns of rescue just barely in the distance.. All of a sudden a group of red vehicles quickly find their spots and like a well trained and organized group of professionals are racing into what I was fleeing only moments before.. And like clockwork one was doing this and another was doing that all the while they are watching each others backs in preparation of entering an unknown place with no visibility and knowledge of explosions and fire, they do something that can only be described as heroic.. Yes my home endured some really bad bumps and bruises but thanks to the Albert Lea Fire Department, she will live another day..
