 The Fireman's Prayer

 
 
When duty call's me, oh Lord,
Wherever Flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever Be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate
Enable me to be alert,
and oh Lord, guide my every move,
for life is so precious,
please don't let us loose.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect their property
And if according to thy will,
That I must give my life,
Then with thy protecting hand my Lord,
I pray thee, protect my children and my wife.

Woodbury Fall Fest 2017

Recruiting future fire-fighters and the hit-of-the-day at the Woodbury Fall Fest 2017: under blue sky and warm sun, the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department set up a children's firefighting exercise. Youngsters suited up to wash away targets with a fire extinguisher, penetrated a wall, advanced a hose line, and crossed the finish line. See the photos for a sampling of a great day.
