We plan to close Bobcat Road over US-20 from May 20 to June 21. Traffic would still be able to cross US-20 at the Epworth Interchange. Wanted you guys to know if you need to respond in this area.

We'd like to thank the Epworth Fire Department for all of your support and kindness provided to our family at the time of our father's/grandfather's passing. We appreciate all who attended the wake and/or funeral as well as the memorial plaque. The "Striking the Four Fives" ceremony was very touching and honored dad/Grandpa for all his years of services on the department. He always had a special place in his heart for all those who serve on the department. Thank you for all your care and support!

Let me extend my condolences to the department and to the family of former Chief Tom Hancock. I didnt know of his passing till I saw the news on your webpage. I met Tom at one of the peer review session for the AFG grant program and saw him there several times after that at other panel sessions. I was expecting to see him next week at panel again along with Bob Platz from Dyersville. As firefighters do, we talked alot about our departments and the changes they have undergone over the years. Tom was extremely proud of your department the firefighters and the accomplishments of your department. I have never travled close to your town, but through Tom I feel like I have been in your station. I was expecting to catch up on department happenings and improvements, but I guess that will have to be another day. God Bless you all and keep you safe and please pass along my sympathies to his family and his brother and sister firefighters. Derrick Hall, Deputy Chief/Paramedic City of Hazard, Kentucky

I just discovered that you have this Guestbook page and want to extend belated but sincere thanks and appreciation from New Melleray Abbey for your prompt and professional response at 2 a.m at the time of Br. Kevin Knox's heart attack (2-27-15). Thanks to you, he recovered and is back with us (and working!). The doctor said he never would have survived without his having been transported to ER so quickly. You are literally life-savers.
With our gratitude,

I want to thank everyone who had to respond to our house this morning. The firefighters who responded were extremely friendly, and couldn't have responded a minute faster. By the time I made it to my garage they had already arrived! Dale, Marty, Mike and several others I didn't catch the names of, thank you for your help. It is good to know that you are right around the corner when needed.

Hello Epworth Fire Department. I love your website! I just moved to Epworth to take a new job and it gives me great peace of mind knowing that I have the protection of such a great fire department. I have lived in some places where the nearest fire protection was out of town and I will never take it for granted. Thank you for all that you do. I'm very sorry that I missed your Centennial Celebration!

We just wanted you to know that we appreciated the invitation to sing at your 100th year celebration. It was an honor for us to be a part of such a wonderful celebration. I'm not sure if very much was heard when we thanked you that day from the stage, but will recap a few of the things I talked about.

At this time of year when we recognize and thank our leaders, members of the military and those who have fought for our freedom, we sometimes overlook our volunteer heroes, who work without pay and without schedule in service to our community--but who are always there in emergency and without hesitation

We want to recognize our local heroes and thank you for your lasting dedication, dropping everything to assist your community at a moments notice, saving property and lives---serving us for over 100 years! We know the Brotherhood of firefighters runs deep; you serve the needs of others but are also there to help each other. May God bless you and keep you safe. Carol Heying for the Lemon Sisters

Greetings Fellow Firefighters,

I am writing to you asking for a huge favor. My name is Anna Kegley and am the wife of a firefighter in the small community of Iron River in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

I am on a mission to make a young mans day a little brighter. Our Fire Chiefs 14 year old son Jacob is in a childrens hospital in Minnesota fighting leukemia for the second time. After being in the hospital for the last couple of months Jacob had what they call his second birthday by having what we hope will be a life saving bone marrow transplant on May 11. Now he has to spend the next 100 days in the hospital. Jacob is a true staple of strength at our department. He absolutley loves firefighters so we are hoping you can help us out a little by dropping him a small note of encouragement and if possible maybe add a small token from your department..whether it be a shirt,(adult lg) picture, patch, cap or just a note is fine too. We are just trying to help him add a few smile to his day and getting some support from other departments would be a thrill for him.

If you could help us out I would greatly appreciate it and I know he and his family would too. He has a caringbridge site if you would like to check it out! Also please feel free to share this with other departments! Thank you for your help, stay safe and God Bless.....Anna Kegley
