  • The Carrier Mills Fire Department wants to extend it's appreciation to the community for the generous support shown in recent fundraisers.
    During several recent fundraising events, the citizens of the Carrier Mills and the Carrier Mills Fire Protection District have generously assisted the fire department in gathering funds in their efforts to assist the village in maintaining it's high standard of fire coverage for the district.
    “We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the people who have helped us,” said Fire Chief Jerry Choat. “Many of the donations were from people out of town, but in the fire protection district. That really helps and it shows the firefighters that their efforts are appreciated.”
    Choat went on say that Carrier Mills relies on surrounding fire protection districts to support them in the protection that their district is called upon to provide.
    “It's a group effort.” Choate said. “No one district can do it alone.”
