MTFD Support Services is a vital part of the department. Based on the "Ladies Auxillary" of the past, these dedicated people provide drinks and food to the firefighters at scenes and training, assist with organizing special events like parades and fundraisers. If you are interested in serving your community through the fire department, but not interested in fighting fires, this may be for you. Contact MTFD Headquarters (812-294-1738)
In the evening hours of Saturday May 31, emergency crews were dispatched to the area of County Road 160 East @ Castetter Road. A red minivan had left the roadway and slid down the embankment, hidden in the trees. Thankfully, a passerby witnessed the accident and was able to dial 911. The vehicle was over the hill and completely hidden from the roadway. The occupants were un-injured and were able to exit the vehicle on their own. MTFD units checked the vehicle for fluids leaking and remained on scene until it had been recovered and removed the woods.
