Pleasantville Emergency Services is hosting a Vendor/Craft Fair and bake sale, this Saturday from 9 to 2 at the fire station, as a fundraiser for their organization, to purchase new equipment such as a heart monitor or fire fighting equipment. Jordan Van Ness, with Pleasantville Emergency Services, tells KNIA KRLS News that they also plan to update their training prop behind the station, with concrete walls to simulate going up on the roof of a house to fight a fire, so they can train new firefighters. Van Ness says another important part of the effort is also to draw more volunteers to join the Emergency Services department, to provide coverage for the growing community for emergency, fire and medical services.
