Residents in attendance are able to get a hands-on look at trucks, equipment and other fire fighting essentials. It's a way for the fire department to not only get to know their community, but also raise funds.
They are currently operating out of the county barn and have plans to build a new fire station. All proceeds from these block parties go toward the new facility.
Hotdogs, drinks, and chips were be provided. The next block party will be held at the end of the Summer or early Fall.
