Lately I have noticed in my travels people asking about the pager I wear that alerts me to fire and EMS activity in the area. It is essential to providing quick response in an area that relies almost exclusively on volunteer efforts. Many ask where they can get the same item. Personal scanners are available and pretty costly. Thanks to the world wide web and smart phones now it is pretty easy for the public to tune in at home or on the go.
Here is a link that will allow you to tune in on your personal computer.
Please remember if you are experiencing an emergency or witness one to call 911. Also our area is served by volunteer members who not only respond to emergencies but must raise funds to do so. Please support a bingo, BBQ, or other fundraiser or inquire about how you could contribute time or money.
Rain or shine it is always nice to get in the car and take a cruise around Deep Creek Lake. Next weekend there will be even more to do and see. It is time again for the Artists Studio Tours in Garrett County. Not only something fun to do, but a great chance to meet the artists and see first hand how they do what they do.
If by chance it does not happen to be perfect weather one Monday, or it does. You may be looking for something different to do at Deep Creek Lake. Friends Store may be the thing.
Just down river from Deep Creek Lake is the Sang Run area. The Friends Store was once the meeting place for the local residents and fur trappers. Today the store is not open in a conventional way. However if you are looking for something else to do at Deep Creek Lake here is a chance to do a bit of a time warp.
