Over the weekend the Battle Creek Fire Department's Engine 2 decided to crash an area block party in the best way. No there wasn't a fire, accident or even a cat stuck in a tree... just good clean fun.
So often we hear of the dangerous and sad events our first reponders are involved in. Recently one Portage's public safety officers stopped to make a welfare check for a woman sitting in a wheelchair on a sidewalk.
A police officer's work is never done. With all the things we see in the news, it can be easy to forget law enforcement and first responders in our communities are real human beings who have families and call our cities, townships and villages their home.
