Remembering on Memorial Day

Member Preston Tyrrell, May 27

In the early summer of 1945, as the war drew to a close, Melvin Doughten, lost his life while defending our country. Melvin was driving a tank at night over a bridge and the tank ended up in the water killing all aboard.

Melvin Doughten - Valedictorian ... (Full Story & Photos)

TBT - Our First Ladder Truck

Member NSFC Webmaster, May 02

Today we look back at the fire company’s first ladder truck.

It was 1968 the Fire Company had just finished the new firehouse. Additionally, they purchased a new 1967 Ward LaFrance and started looking at expanding the fire company’s capabilities with the addition of a ladder truck.

At this point in time a number of apartment buildings had been built. The reach of our ground ladders was 35 feet.
