The year has already started off with a bang. As of the writing of this article, MCAFD has responded to 19 calls in the area.  From house fires, to motor vehicle crashes and a couple of calls for the dive team.  We would like to thank all those that donated to our annual fund drive.  Your contribution was greatly appreciated.

In January, we held the election of fire officers. Robert S. Crowell was appointed our chief for 11th year. Winston Wright and Bruce B. Crowell were appointed Assistant Chiefs. Congratulations to all the officers.

TROY FIRE UPDATE

From the Issue: 
March 2010
It’s hard to believe that February is already over!  Pretty soon all of the snow will have melted and we will be coming up on brush fire season.  The members of the TFD have been working on our two brush trucks to get them ready for brush season.  Brush 1, pictured here, has received many upgrades, including an “Around-the-Pump” Foam System, which makes fighting brush fires much easier.  The association purchased the pump, using donations received from Town citizens and other donors.  Brush 2 has also gotten a makeover, as it will soon be outfitted with a brand new tank.  Our Brush 2 is unusual, one of a few of its kind in the area.

Members have been around the station all the time working on the trucks, and fixing up the station in general.  The interior was recently given a new paint job, and a wall has been redone. Come down on March 13th from 7-10 AM for our breakfast, and check out all the improvements to the station and the trucks.  Remember to wear your seatbelt!

MEADOWOOD FIRE

From the Issue: 
December 2009
In your mailboxes you will have found our annual fund drive letters.  With the help of your donations to our fund drive, we are able to provide trained fire, dive and rescue personnel and specialized equipment to any fire department that requests our help.  We also are able to provide training on nights and weekends to local firefighters. This helps meet the schedule of a volunteer department when it's unreasonable to ask volunteers to take time away from their families and work.

Unfortunately, our costs are increasing as well as everyone else's.  We continue to rely on your generous donations and support.  The members of the Meadowood County Area Fire Department thank everyone for their support.  It is people like you who make Meadowood possible.  MCAFD wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
