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)
Saturday morning, Dec 31 2016, responders were called to Hwy 31 north of the forestry for a motor vehicle crash. CAR 202 and BC 21 arrived on scene to find a small passenger car had struck the rear of a farm tractor. The impact broke the tractor in half, and the car went off the roadway. Fortunately, the driver of the tractor escaped the crash with no injuries. The driver of the car was transported with minor injuries.
Engine 21 and Brush 22 responded and began the lengthy clean-up of the highway. The tractor had leaked every bit of engine oil, hydraulic oil and transmission fluid onto the highway. 31 was closed completely for about an hour while the scene was mediated and the wrecked vehicles removed.
