Community Rescue Service held its first open house in several years on October 4.
The CRS logo on the station.
The Safety House trailer was there. It has a room that fills with (harmless) smoke to teach kids how to escape fire.
The CRS Special Events trailer is used for, yes, you guessed it, special events.

The squad all opened up with light tower deployed.
There were two dedications during the open house event. One was to longtime CRS friend Linn Hendershot.
The other was the dedication of this ambulance to Theodore Gossard.
Members of the Gossard family accepting the certificate from Chief Amos.
Along with the Safety House, we were visited by other agencies at the open house.
A Medstar helicopter also stopped by.
It circled the ground a couple of times before landing. It reminded me of a dog looking for a place to lay down.
Eventually it found a place it liked and started to settle.
The inside of a helicopter has all sorts of fun controls and switches! This is probably the closest to the inside of this helicopter that you want to come though.
There was also a police K-9 demonstration.
The doggy really enjoys her job.
That's it for the open house! This is the Medstar helicopter lifting off to fly home.
