“We really appreciated the Monroe Fire Department taking the time to come out to speak with the residents about fire safety,” said Activities Director Brittany Plyler. “They shared some great information with the residents and answered any questions that they had. It makes us all more aware and grateful to know that we have such an awesome fire department that answers calls so efficiently when needed.”
