Smokin’ Pork for the LOVFD

This past Friday afternoon till about Saturday noon I led our BBQ team to smoke 100 5-6 pound pork butts for a fire department fundraiser. Earlier this week I made up pints of both my regular and spicy BBQ sauce as well as some pickled jalapeños. All to help raise funds for my fire department and to spread community cheer!

LOVFD Open House & Community Day

Yesterday at the fire hall we had an open house and community day. The goal was to make visible, not only the Lone Oak Volunteer Fire Department, but also our emergency service partners that serve our community.

Volunteer Fire Service – Critical Condition

The volunteer fire service in the United States is in crisis. Small rural communities are struggling to keep pace with the growing demand for their services, while at the same time facing a decline in the number of people available to serve as volunteers.
