Swisher Fun Days
The Jefferson Monroe Fire Department can be seen all over this two day event. Friday evening we sponsor a kiddie tractor pull where children from the community have a small competition to see how far they can pull weight on the back of a mini tractor. After they pull the children receive a ribbon and juice box, and those who place first or second get a trophy.
Early Saturday morning, members volunteer at the 5k and fun run, their job is to be there in case of a medical emergency.
A few hours later you can see the firefighters, EMT members and the trucks driving in the parade throwing candy to the children.
The last thing the firefighters help do is standby at the fireworks show in case of an emergency.
