They brought root beer float makings to the north end fire station and hosted a short get-together for Longboat Key firemen and policemen. Non-duty police officers joined the firemen where the typically hard-working servicemen took a load off and got their floats on. It was a relaxing fifteen minutes of fun jokes and root beer floats.
