From Press Reports


During the Eupora Fire Department’s monthly business meeting on Oct. 22, the Eupora First United Methodist Church Social Committee and Mayor Dan Burchfield thanked firefighters for their services to the city of Eupora.

Social Committee members Sheila Murphy, Karen Shook, Linda Burchfield, Mary Lynn McCully, Maggie Bjorgum and Judy Smith prepared and served EFD firefighters and on-duty Eupora Police Department officers a large supper and desserts at the fire station.

“The men and women of this department spend a lot of their time away from their loved ones in meetings, training classes or being dispatched to a calls. They voluntarily do all of this mainly because they have a desire to be there for anyone if needed,” said Assistant Chief Mitch Jackson.

“The support that this city, county and its citizens show the Eupora Fire Department has been overwhelming and deeply appreciated by each member of this department. That support is what drives each of us to better serve our community,” he added.
