The Marine Mammal Stranding Center and the Shrewsbury Hose Co. #1 participated in the following rescue: Unusual rescue in Shrewsbury! How this adult male harp seal ended up in a duck pond is somewhat of a mystery. Did he wander up the freshwater tributary searching for fish, and climb up the steep embankment to rest? Was he swimming in the area during the recent lunar high tide and get swept through a culvert? One thing was clear, as the underweight seal continued to haul out in the woods, there...

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a deadly gas created by many home appliances that use natural gas, gasoline, or oil. Every Winter you'll hear a tragic story about CO poisoning.

We would rather respond to a bajillion false activations than find you unplugged your detector and took the batteries out of it.... On th...

Mrs. Fox-Feliciano wrote “Thanks so much for the awesome ride yesterday! And thanks for spending some extra ...
Good morning neighbors! Take a look at this! The floors in the Engine Bays and in our Meeting Room have needed some TLC for a while. They take a lot of abuse and really came to the end of their useful life. We decided to tackle the project in November and Boy Howdy did they turn out great! We’ve posted some photos of the finished project because the floors really look fantastic! We need to thank the Mayor and Council for their financial support, Warfel Construction for their generous donat...

This is the first year that the Ladies Auxiliary has teamed up with Frutta Bowl, and we all look forward to a fantastic new partnership! This program began...
Happy Monday, neighbors! Recently the Shrewsbury Hose Company responded to a report of a fire at a house in town. It was originally dispatched as a “mulch fire in the landscape bed,” but when we got there we found a plastic garbage bag on fire. We determined that the flooring refinisher put the wood dust from the sander in a plastic garbage bag and then threw an empty can of mineral spirits in the bag as well. As the bag sat in the warm sun, the wood dust heated up enough to ignite a...
