Oskaloosa Fire Department turns 150

You’ve heard the joke about someone being so old that their birthday cake has enough candles to cause a fire.  That could apply to the Oskaloosa Fire Department, as they’re celebrating their 150th birthday Saturday (10/9) with an open house.  Captain Adam Haroldson with the Fire Department says there will be activities for kids and adults.

“We’re going to have all kinds of different events…..talks about the history about the department and a lot of old photographs and documents  throughout the history. We also have an old apparatus from the Nelson Pioneer Farm that we’re going to have out there, so people can see the old and the new.”

The Oskaloosa Fire Department’s open house will be Saturday from 10am to 4pm at the fire station in downtown Oskaloosa.
