About 40 years ago one of our fire police threw a lit flare through the open window of a car that didn’t listen and drove through one of our scenes. I like to think that person learned there lesson. But also makes me wonder if we need to start doing this again.
I hope the driver was caught and received the apporpriate fine.

Taking pride in what we do and the appearance of our facilities is just as important as preparing for responding to emergencies. Here is Joshua Holl taking pride in the station and doing some clean-up. Our members often do this without prompting and we just happened to catch Josh "in the act." Thank you for your hard work, devotion to the department, and service to our community. ... See moreSee less
While I do appreciate the recognition - my work is only a small part of what it takes to keep our station running and looking good for the Community we serve. I’m very glad to be able to do my part, and there are many others in our department with the same ethic. I am proud to be a part of the Palmyra Fire Co.👍
