Winter Storm Brings 11 Runs

Sunday, January 24, 2016  A record breaking winter storm rolled through the area this past weekend, bringing heavy snow, gusty winds, and several calls for the crews at CBFD. Units were dispatched for two inside investigations, a vehicle fire, a dwelling fire, a vehicle crash, a gas leak, a medical assist, and several public service calls. We'd like to remind everybody that in the event of heavy snow, please shovel the snow away from your nearest fire hydrant. It could save your life!
