The Dundee Fire Department will celebrate the 182nd anniversary of the volunteer emergency responder group, Saturday, April 23. The event, which was originally planned to commemorate the 180th anniversary was delayed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. will feature an open house with old department trucks, apparatus on display and a children's section.
The history of the department includes:
