All Car Club Cruise - First Responders Honored 

On Saturday, May 16, 2020, at approximately 11:00 a.m., an All Car Club Cruise came through our Lookingglass Fire Department parking lot to honor first responders. Our volunteers opened up the doors, got the rigs out, and returned greetings as 70-100 cars of all types came through town (Classics, Corvettes, Mustangs, MOPARs, hot rods).

Firefighters and Medical Responders 

Thank you to the people who have newly volunteered. Welcome aboard! Our Department is staffed only by volunteer firefighters and medical responders.
