The presentation underscored the partnership Masons have with their area first responders. The New Richmond Masonic Lodge was proud to present this device to the Fire Department, as the Fire Suppression Tool is designed to quickly extinguish fires in enclosed buildings and inside vehicles and will be a helpful fire fighting tool for the Apple River Fire Department.
