Party responsibly, Don’t Drink and Drive

As the new year is almost upon us, we know that many are celebrating it.  As much as we enjoy meeting our residents and those passing through the fire district, we would rather not see you tonight on negative terms.  If you drink, do the responsible thing and don’t drive.  Call a friend, a cab, or simply stay where you are.  Nothing is worth risking your life or the lives of others on the roadway.

We at the Fredericktown Community Fire District wish you a very Happy New Year.
