We Recognize National EMS Week, May 15th-21st

Accident-Oct. 18 2012 029National EMS Week is the perfect time to honor your local EMS professionals and promote awareness of their everyday service to the public. We at the Liberty Fire Company No. 4 would like to wish everyone a happy “National EMS Week” as we honor our local Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Paramedics and Flight Crews who serve the community with outstanding services every single day.

This year’s theme is “Called To Care“.

“Every day, you’re called upon to help others through one of the most frightening times of their lives. Every day, you’re called upon to provide a sense of security and relief during chaotic and challenging situations. Every day, you’re called upon to do the work that only a select few can do. Every day, you’re — CALLED TO CARE.”

If you see an EMS member this week, please say “Thank you”.

May 7, 2016 – Last Pot Pie Dinner For the Season

The door has closed on the Liberty Fire Company Chicken Pot Pie season. Thank you to everyone that has continued to support us time and time again over the past couple months/years. Without you all, we wouldn’t be as successful as we have been. We are looking forward to taking the summer off, doing some upgrades, and preparing for other fundraisers held throughout the year. We will see everyone back in September!!

A huge thank you also goes out to all of our families! As you can see in this picture, (and there are several people missing) it takes a lot of people to make this as smooth and effortless operation. So thank you to all of our members and their families for sacrificing a whole Saturday to make a couple bucks for the Liberty. Enjoy the time off, September will be here before you know it! Thanks again!!
