Congratulations to the LVFD Auxiliary!

The City of Laurel recently dedicated the new rehab/canteen unit to the LVFD auxiliary during a ceremony at city hall. The auxiliary, like the fire department, enjoys a very strong bond with the City of Laurel supporting many functions and calls for help during the year. The auxiliary staffed the old canteen unit (aka big bertha) that the city recently retired and replaced with a new Freightliner vehicle. The new unit is a stainless steel kitchen on wheels that includes a bathroom and will provide rehab services to first responders during major incidents.

Also during the ceremony the newly renovated/upgraded Emergency Operationb center was dedicated to long-time city employee and current City Administrator, Marty Flemion. The LVFD extends our congratulations to Marty for this well-deserved honor! Marty is a strong proponent of emergency preparedness as well as a strong supporter of the first reponders in Laurel.
