While the members of the Elizabethtown Fire Department are busy training, cleaning and inspecting equipment and responding to calls, they still manage to find time to take part in interesting activities in the community and surrounding areas.
Saturday will be one day when the members of the Elizabethtown Fire Department will take a team of 14 members and travel to Fayetteville for a double-elimination softball tourney at J. P. Riddle Stadium. Chief Nick West said that Elizabethtown Fire’s team, “The Mules,” will take the field at 11 a.m.
Chief West said the team came up with the name based off a hand painted mascot on one of the department’s trucks.
Chief West said the team has been practicing hard and looks forward to Saturday’s game.
