Secretary Application


Do you recycle printer cartridges?
Probably not, and they end up in the trash like ours used to. But no more! If you will drop off used cartridges (any brand or size) at Station 3 on Tyler Foote, the department will recycle them for you, and will receive three bucks each in the process! So make a painless contribution to your firefighters! Every little bit adds up and really helps!
