In the 1960’s, most rural areas of Kansas had no organized fire protection, and Blue Township was no different.  One night in 1966, a fire broke out in the K-Hill Engine Service shop on east Highway 24.

Our crew had a great time out at Little Apple Pedal today! They got to meet some great families out enjoying the day while providing off-road rescue services to the bike trail area with UTV 1 and ATV 1.

We look forward to next year! ...
