The fire department responded to six calls for service in the month of June including 2 incidents involving dirt bikes. As with all summer activities, please be safe, take all necessary precautions, and use safety gear. Without the proper safety equipment these incidents may have had much more serious outcomes.
Also… please take the time to read the DFS briefing on fireworks posted on our site. It only takes an instant for a fun Fourth of July celebration to turn tragic.
