Two men flip pancakes on griddleThe bad weather maybe turned out to be a good thing for the Blair Fire and Rescue pancake feed as nearly 900 people stood in line for pancakes, eggs and sausage. That’s close to double the number from last year. In addition to a warm breakfast inside the station, there was plenty of activity outside as well. The LifeNet medical helicopter based in Fremont paid a visit. Smokey Bear was on hand to greet visitors, and the new Rural Fire pumper truck was a popular draw for youngsters. The State Highway Patrol invited youngsters to try out the “Seatbelt Convincer” a gravity sled that demonstrate the force of impact when not wearing a seatbelt. The annual pancake breakfast kicks off National Fire Prevention week.
