Part II

You don't have to travel to Madison County, Iowa to see covered bridges. There's three such right here in Northern Illinois within an hour's drive. One has been built within the last two years, its landscaping/parking lot is in last stages of development. An expensive project, you say, but the good feeling you carry away is priceless.

Carroll County Fire Safety House

Members of the Thomson, Savanna and Mt. Carroll Fire Departments volunteer their time on Friday, Oct. 10, 2008, during Fire Prevention Week, training children at the West Carroll Primary School on how to safely escape from a burning, smoke-filled house.

Established in 1985, the Children's Fire Safety House is a joint venture of the 7 Carroll County Fire Departments and their professional personnel, dedicated to keeping our communities safe.

Remember to say "Thank You!"
