Firefighter/Training Captain Jason January said it will be a day of exciting activities. “A representative of the City will present a proclamation at 9 a.m. In the afternoon, three-person teams will compete in pumper races at 1 p.m.,” said January. “There will also be raffles, fire trucks, and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). It will be alot of fun and we invite the public to join us.”
