See a problem? WE NEED YOUR HELP! Fire hydrants throughout the city are covered with snow. In an emergency it's important that we have easy access to the hydrants as it is our water source for a fire. If you have a hydrant on your property please help us out by clearing 3 foot around the hydrant. Firefighters Foulk and Easterday would appreciate the help as they are out clearing hydrants today.

Thank you,

I was quite shocked when I called and was told that our KFD would not help a kitten stuck in a tree all night ??? Other fire departments do. Sad 😔
Please help spread the news... With so many people out of work it’s great news that the U.S. Census Bureau is still taking applications for help with the 2020 Census! Positions are temporary & flexible so make good supplemental income. Pay rate is $16- $25.50 per hour (depending upon position & county of residence) Go to 2020Census.gov/jobs for more information & to apply today!
Haven't heard from Ember lately. What's she been up to? 🙂
All the children and staff at Children's Laugh N Learn would like to thank you all for being our heroes! We really appreciate all the sacrifices you make to keep us all safe!
It's for the date not the location
