Fire Department Holds Successful Open House

The Knoxville Fire Department held their annual open house event this past weekend. Fire Chief Mike Roberts says despite the rain Saturday morning they had a decent and steady turn out. The event included a pancake breakfast, sponsored by the Lions Club and provided an opportunity for community members to check out the departments’ equipment including their new fire rescue attack truck. Also on hand for attendees to check out was the new Mercy One helicopter from Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.
