Fire Department announcements
Block Island Fire Department Chief Kirk Littlefield made the following announcements this past week:
The annual Steak Fry, which kicks off as soon as the Fourth of July Parade ended, will not be held this year. This is one of the signature fundraising events for the department.
Littlefield is also asking residents to cut back any overgrown tree branches that may be hanging over driveways. These low branches make it difficult, and sometimes impossible, for fire trucks to pass if the branches are hanging too low.
