Livingston and Polk County is fortunate to have a fire department that's ready to go at a moment's notice and is equipped for nearly any situation.
Parade and Celebration Planned for LVFD's 100th Year, LIVINGSTON, October 18, 2015 - What is the value of dependable volunteer fire department? The answer is obvious. On average, the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department is called out upwards 600 to 800 times a year for situations where it's common for lives to be in danger. There are 365 days in a year (you do the math).
WORTHY OF CELEBRATION...
The obvious good fortune for this town to have not just a properly equipped volunteer fire department, but the men who make it work is a TREMENDOUS blessing for the City of Livingston and for Polk County.
100th ANNIVERSARY PARADE, CELEBRATION, FOOD AND MORE...
Bring your family and friends to honor the men (past and present) that are real life heroes. A parade will proceed from Harrison Body Shop on North Washington southward into the heart of Downtown Livingston. The parade starts at 10 am. At noon time there'll be a presentation and catfish meal in the Livingston High School parking lot ($5 per plate). There'll also be a time to recognize men of the LVFD who have passed away. It'll be great time to show appreciation and support for men who've been saving our lives and property for 100 years.
