During the monthly testing of the Emergency Warning System, one of the sirens malfunctioned and indicated that there was a gas leak in the area.

The Fire Department is coordinating efforts to repair the aforementioned siren.

Come out to Mr. Twist today and see some of our officers and firefighters compete in a friendly competition for local charities! The police side will deliver orders of $25 or more!
