Kiwanis shared a little history with fire station 514

Jan Norton

Bob Swanbeck met with Chief Hohenberger of the Argyle Fire District at the new fire station 514 in Northlake. The new station has an agreement with the Denton Fire Department to co-serve Robson Ranch and improve our insurance fire rating.

Kathy Perry donated an antique hand held extinguisher, and a container of ‘fire grenades’ which explode a gas to knockout the fire. The younger firefighters were quite interested in learning the glass bulbs were thrown at a fire and worked well. Then they learned the bulbs are no longer in use, as they can be dangerous to the ‘operator’—-the gas is Phosgene.
