Tanner’s Books in Sidney is stepping up to donate a volume on the history of the town’s fire department to each of the current serving firefighters.

Cliff McNeill-Smith, owner of Tanner’s Books, said he credits the Sidney Archives crew of Brad Morrison and Gail Pedersen and Harry Nunn for putting together a great history book.

“I’m pleased to be a small part of getting the book to local firefighters,” he said.

The book, They Never Fail to Respond, will be distributed and sold by the firefighters this weekend during the department’s 100th anniversary.

Following that, Tanner’s Books will have the volume on display and for sale at the store in Beacon Avenue.

Morrison added he hopes the book goes over well and their initial press run of 400 sells like hotcakes this weekend.
