Happy Independence Day!
During the upcoming July 3rd/4th celebration, the LVFD will be ready to respond to emergencies whether on the lake or off. However, the best emergency response is the one that never has to take place; please remember that safety doesn't happen by accident.
From all of us in the LVFD, we wish you a happy- and safe- holiday and summer!
