Almarante Fire District to display new equipment, celebrate 30th anniversary

Published: Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 05:16 PM.

With the turnout gear, fire engine and new equipment — including a new fire hose, rescue saw and thermal camera — Carroll said the district has no debt other than regular operating expenses.  

In addition to displaying the department’s facility and fire rescue vehicles, the open house will feature an inflatable bounce house for children, a fire safety house and a dunking booth.

Children can also expect Smokey Bear, Sparky the Fire Dog and McGruff the Crime Dog. 

Bass angler David Howard will display his boat, give fishing tips to children, and give away a $400 fishing trip. Several door prizes will also be up for grabs, including a 50-50 auction.     

Overall, the district's volunteers want to show why they are capable of serving the community.

“We want everyone to come and help us celebrate — because we are proud of what we got,” Wilkins said.
