The Bennett Fire Protection District held a pancake breakfast and open house at Station 91 in Bennett on July 9th, 2016. Local residents were able to enjoy breakfast, meet with firefighters, check out some of the apparatus and tour the station. The department used this event as an opportunity to discuss their future needs. Bennett would like to place a ballot question in the November election asking for a mill levy increase in order to build a new station.
