THANK YOU SPLIT ROCK RESORT!

Thursday, June 23, 2016   The Lake Harmony Fire Company would like to thank the Split Rock Resort for purchasing over $5,000 worth of new fire fighting equipment. The new hose, nozzles, wrenches and bags will be used in the event of a fire in the hotel. The new lightweight hose will make it easier for firefighters to carry the hose to the standpipe areas of the hotel. The addition of 2 1/2" hose will allow us to reach all rooms from the standpipes, increasing guest safety. Thanks again, we really appreciate all that you do for our fire company.
