Smoke Alarm Saves House and Family Dog

South Salem FD, July 20

This year was no different, with many hours put in to get that coveted trophy for best truck and to proudly show off the house. It’s also an evening to celebrate the successful year the department has had, as well as recognize members’ achievements and to also remember those the department has lost in the past year.
