     In the past I have written about the “pull a rabbit from the hat drill. All members gather around a bucket and each pull a paper out with a tool listed on it. They must then find that single tool and return to the group to discuss where they found it and what it does.

     The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit will be at the Washington County Fair in Washington, IA, July 15-17.

     The exhibit is a tribute to all those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, including, of course, the 343 members of FDNY who made the ultimate sacrifice.

     March 9–11, 2018 the Training Division held the hands on portion for the Hazardous Materials Operation course at the Neligh fire department. Twenty-eight firefighters from Neligh, Pierce, Plainview and Hastings participated in the course. 

     At 12:33 on March 4, the Norfolk Fire Division was dispatched to 1203 Logan St. for a house porch on fire. First arriving units saw heavy smoke and moderate flames coming from the rear of the house, and moderate smoke coming from the eaves and roof vents. Initial crews were able to contain the fire to the rear of the house.
