It's been exactly a week since the Mini Fair and we wanted to let you all know there were a record number of volunteers that helped... 

Welcome to Station 4800

Our new site is currently under construction 

In the late 1970's, residents and property owners of Readmond and Friendship Townships were concerned about fire protection and the long response times to fires and emergencies from Harbor Springs. Realizing that saving lives and property required a prompt response, these men and women began to secure property for a fire station, funds to procure equipment, and people to become firefighters and rescue personnel.

In order to achieve this goal, the Good Hart Mini-Fair was born.  Proceeds from this fundraising event were used to purchase used equipment and to essentially start a fire department from scratch. Land was donated for the fire hall on Robinson Road and members and supporters built the building. Soon, Cross Village joined in and the Readmond-Friendship Cross Village Fire Department, now known as R.F.C. Fire and Rescue, was born.

Today, the Fire Department is a progressive, dynamic organization, changing and growing to meet the increasing demands placed upon it. Major construction, increasing year-round residents as well as year-round visitors create increasing responsibility upon safety services. Local, State, and Federal requirements also place regulatory demands upon the Fire Department that we are ready and willing to meet.

Proceeds from the annual RFC Fire and Rescue Benefit dinner on September 7, 2016, will go toward the funding of a new breathing air compressor to fill our Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
