First Enegry just jacked up the price of electricity for all electric houses. So people start using alternative methods of heating and lighting their houses.

Parkman has an AMAZING fire department, wouldn't trade them for the world. Their response time is extremely fast for any resident in the Parkman area. Troy, Burton and Middlefield also provide awesome backup. These men and women are all volunteers and they do a GREAT job!!!!!

WELL... COUPLE OF THINGS HERE..FOR ONE, IT DIDNT HAPPEN IN MIDDLEFIELD... IT HAPPENED IN PARKMAN AND THE PARKMAN FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS THE FIRST ON SCENE AND CALLED MIDDLEFIELD FD FOR MUTUAL AID.... WE MAY BE A SMALL TOWN FD, BUT GIVE US SOME CREDIT.. WE ARE VOLUNTEERS, WE DONT HAVE A MANNED STATION LIKE MIDDLEFIELD DOES WHERE THEIR FIREFIGHTERS BASICALLY LIVE AT THE STATION ... BEFORE REPORTING ANYTHING, PEOPLE NEED TO GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT!!
