A big shout out to the crews from our fire dept who have spent countless hours responding to nonstop EMS and rescue calls. Some have been there since early Friday morning with very little sleep. We had 50+ people rescued from stranded vehicles and given warm shelter and food at our firehouse. Without our dedicated volunteers the outcome of this storm could have been a lot worse. Please remember to stay home and please don’t go out on the roads. Merry Christmas to All! Stay safe!!
