SUBMITTING NEWS:
Before sending in apparatus order information: Please verify that it is true and correct. While I know everyone has the best of intentions and mean well, posting order information that is not true can be detrimental. Many chief officers and apparatus dealers read this site and posting an order that has not actually been placed can cause hard feelings and tension between a department, the town, and the sales people. So, please make sure your information is accurate before submitting it. Thank you.

In the interest of keeping clutter down, notices that are not for date specific events (such as on going fundraisers) will be kept online for no longer than 6 months unless I am asked to repost. For Sale items will be kept online for 3 months unless I am asked to repost. If the item is sold, please let me know so I can remove the listing.
