Six Harpswell volunteers recently graduated from firefighter training programs, giving the town it’s biggest public safety boost in years.
Three men each from the Orr’s and Bailey Islands and Cundy’s Harbor fire departments successfully finished months of training required to become certified interior attack firefighters, allowing them to enter burning buildings in teams to rescue anyone trapped inside and put out structure fires.
The Orr's & Bailey Islands Fire Department is looking for donations for its annual auction and yard sale to be held August 12 and 13 at the fire station on Orr's Island.
Items may be dropped off at the fire station at 1600 Harpswell Islands Road, Route 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays during June and July. Donors can also call 833-5405 to arrange for free pickup of larger pieces or multiple items.
