With Independence Day approaching, the crew at the Iola Fire Department will have their hands extra full with the likelihood of holiday-related mishaps as well as tinderbox-conditions due to a lack of rain. 

To them, it’s just another challenging but rewarding week on the job.

The department covers a fairly large area including the City of Iola and 5 miles of the surrounding rural county, as well as providing assistance to the neighboring counties.
