Break The Stigma

For Mental Health Month this year, Mental Health America is encouraging individuals to look around and look within. From your neighborhood to genetics, many factors come into play when it comes to mental health conditions. We encourage everyone to consider how the world around them effects their mental health.

Over Scanner Traffic . . .

Remember, scanner traffic is not news until confirmed, and eyewitness accounts are often unreliable. All parties remain innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Also, only a small percentage of traffic is actually recorded below. Timestamps are approximately when our team reported hearing it. All traffic is fluid and subject to correction at any time. Traffic should not be considered fact until investigations are completed.

International Firefighters’ Day was May 4

International Firefighter Day is a day set aside for communities around the world to remember fallen firefighters and show their appreciation for the service that firefighters provide in protecting people and property.

As a team of volunteers, they make great sacrifices of their time, their talent, and sometimes their safety so that we can all be safe.

Thank you to all of our Fire Departments!
