Fire Department appreciates kindness

Red, White and Blue Fire would like to thank the American Legion and Wal-Mart for their generous donation of U.S. and Colorado flags.

Each of these entities responded with kindness after hearing the flags in front of our station on Main Street in Breckenridge had been stolen. We are now proudly displaying one of our new sets at the Main Street station and will use the other to put new flags at our North Station near Tiger Road.

It is a pleasure to serve a community that rises to the occasion in every sense.

The Red, White and Blue Fire Department
