Galvez-Lake Volunteer Fire Department firefighters and junior firefighters recently visited Ferrara Fire Apparatus Inc. in Holden as part of the department’s efforts to provide continuing education for its members, a news release said.

The firefighters learned about the importance of routine maintenance and careful operations of fire equipment.

“This is why we push for our firefighters and junior firefighters to learn our trucks before just getting in them and getting to scene,” the release said.
