Wagon and Ambo Staff 8 for the Night Print E-mail

On the evening of Friday, July 19th, 15 Company 8 members staffed Station 8 for the evening. A deluxe grill was acquired and grilled shrimp, BBQ chicken, cheeseburgers, and all of the fixings found their way onto the menu. While everyone had a good time spending time together with the usual firehouse banter, everyone still took time to talk some pre-planning and strategy in the first due. Several patrons at Martin's commented that they were glad to see us out in the community, as we are so often. Everyone finished off the evening with cake and ice cream.
