RFD pays tribute with new uniform look

The Rockford Fire Department is proudly sporting a new look this weekend. It’s something that rarely, if ever, happens but it's all for a good reason.

Memorial Day weekend is always one of the busiest times of year to be on the road and if you're planning on being one of those drivers, don't be surprised to see a lot more flashing lights.

Buttons are $10.00 and are good for all four days. Advanced button sales are $7.00. Kids 6 and under are FREE when accompanied by an adult.
