Maintenance of the station and apparatus

Station repairs: Due to the extreme heat our air conditioner unit for the Dorm has failed and is to be repaired in August. Service on all fire trucks were completed by FAST and oil changes and service on pick-up trucks and the SUV were done in house. Chief Miller and Captain Harding went to Florida to inspect the stock truck the City purchased last month.

Administrative -- Thank-you

Lincoln Fire Department members and management would again like to thank the many citizens that have recently sent thank you letters for emergency services.

Thanks to the staff at Frontier Insurance for donating $480 raised to help Lincoln Fire Department at their annual golf outing.
