Blaze Business

The Blaze was happy to donate a training AED unit and smoke machine to the Fire Department on Monday night at their regular meeting.  These items will be a big asset to all their training needs.  The money used to purchase these items were possible because of the wonderful support the Blaze received from their Glo Bingo in January.    Thank you everyone for your continued support in both these organizations.
