WEST METRO FIRE: West Metro Adds New Rescue To Fleet

It’s nearly 43 feet long, weighs in at more than 36 tons and carries 500 gallons of water. West Metro Fire Rescue’s newest apparatus is a combination fire truck and rescue truck, designed to get firefighters out the door and on scene faster.




Edgewater’s American Legion Post 17 is providing another opportunity to put some extra money in your pocket and have fun at the same time with a Jackpot Bingo Tournament, Saturday, Sept. 9, at 1901 Harlan St. Proceeds help America’s veterans, active service personnel and their families.

Doors open at 11 a.m. and the tournament starts at noon. A series of five games will be played. The first four games pay out $50 to the winners, and the fifth game is a “black out” with the winner going home with the jackpot.

Bingo cards are $1 each or a sheet of six for $5. Players must be at least 18 years of age.

There will be food, drinks and free raffles between games.
