A Reminder from the Fire Chief...
As you may have noticed, it’s a pretty busy time here in Side Lake! Summer means lots of family, friends, and out of town visitors! With all the extra activity, summer is also a very busy time for our first responders and fire department. If you see a vehicle approaching on the road with its flashers on, please pull to the side for our responders to pass. They are here for all of us and appreciate your cooperation to help them get through safely in an emergency.
