The driver will remain inside the truck.

Visits will be Monday-Friday at 6 p.m. or Saturday at 1 p.m.

Child must be 12 or younger

Must reside in Amboy or Sublette’s district

Message the resident’s fire department’s Facebook page to schedule a date/time. They are scheduling these visits through the month of April.
