CF/R had an eventful evening/morning, July 1-2. CF/R was requested for mutual aid with our tanker as did Webster and Abington Fire Departments by Richmond Fire Department. Between the three tankers, we shuttled approximately 30,000 gallons of water to RFD. During this incident CF/R was paged for a medical call, squad 18 responded to assist Red Line EMS.
At approximately 0515 Saturday, July 2, CF/R, Abington and Cambridge City Fire Departments were called for a structure fire on W. Sycamore ST in Centerville. One pt was treated for smoke inhalation on scene however was not transported to the hospital. Fire was quickly extinguished and a kitten trapped inside was rescued and treated for smoke inhalation then returned to its family.

On Saturday, June 18th, representatives from the Indiana Archives and Records Administration held ceremonies to remember the 200th anniversary of Indiana's Constitutional Delegation. With Jim Corridan officiating from the IARA, the ceremonies were held at the grave sites of Reverend Hugh Cull and Joseph Holman, resting in Elkhorn Cemetery in Richmond. A ceremony was also held at the memorial park in Cambridge City for Patrick Beard. These three gentlemen were part of our state's delegation from Wayne County. Jeremiah Cox, also a delegate from Wayne County, was recognized earlier in the day at a ceremony held in Winchester, where he is buried.
Local residents were in attendance for the ceremonies. Also at the ceremonies in Richmond and Cambridge City was the Honor Guard from Boy Scout Troop 16 in Centerville. The Honor Guard held flag ceremonies and led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Jim Corridan takes two flags with him to each ceremony for our delegation. Those flags are the United States Flag and the Indiana State Flag that were flown over the state capitol rotunda on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th.
