MTFD Support Services is a vital part of the department. Based on the "Ladies Auxillary" of the past, these dedicated people provide drinks and food to the firefighters at scenes and training, assist with organizing special events like parades and fundraisers. If you are interested in serving your community through the fire department, but not interested in fighting fires, this may be for you. Contact MTFD Headquarters (812-294-1738)

After weeks of roadblocks, door-to-door collection, as well as our large dinner and auction, we far-surpassed our goal. After hundreds of hours of hard work, during heat, cold and pouring rain, firefig...

There are a few of these hydrants throughout the Clark S...
