Engine and Truck Company crews utilized the Maryland Fire Rescue Institute (MFRI) training facility in Cresaptown last night to review a new standpipe pack deployment evolution.

When returning to quarters, we stopped at Livvy’s and the young lady working the window informed crews that the gentlemen getting in his car picked up our tab. We had an opportunity to thank him before he left but after thanking us for our service to the community, the only thing he said was that he was from Clear Spring and was up visiting his son who is a recent FSU grad and now works at ATK!

Thanks again Mr. Clear Spring!
