As fire fighters, we find ourselves assisting the public in many different ways; from helping those experiencing a flood, to assisting those who have locked their children in their car. In addition, we assist the public through the picking up of hypodermic needles. In 2007, we picked up a total of 843 needles that were carelessly discarded through out the community. If you come across one of these needles, be very careful. Do not touch it and call 911. Let us come by and pick it up.
