For the last several years Co 27 has covered for the New Franklin Volunteer Fire Company (17) in Franklin County during their Appreciation Banquet. Last night BVFD sent a crew of 10 to run the Wagon and Truck for the night. The crew enjoyed the wonderful meal provided and took in 1 response with the Wagon for the auto overturned and smoking on Wayne Road. BVFD and NFVFC have teamed up in 2015 for 2 large joint fund raisers. Check out our events calendar for additional information about the upcoming events. #BVFD27
