LEAVENWORTH, IN – Last month, the Dan-O’s Seasoning team had the privilege of meeting and cooking for the hard-working first responders of Crawford County, IN. The Dan-O’s team had plans of bringing the EMT crew merchandise and cooking for them, which eventually turned into a full-day event full of fun, food, and relaxation with first responders all over their county.
The station that the team visited was in Leavenworth, IN, a small town roughly thirty miles down the river from Louisville, KY. Dan-O’s Seasoning was connected with the station’s EMT team after a member of the team put in a request for seasoning for a new station they just opened.
EMT and Dan-O’s fan, Sam Cornett, was the person who first connected with Dan-O’s Seasoning and helped them set up the event. Sam was pleased to show Dan-O’s their new station, which they had just moved into a few weeks prior.
Being the first big cookout at their new station, the Dan-O’s Seasoning team did its due diligence to provide a Dan-Good selection of food and a lot of it. The food included Toothpick’s smoked pork tenderloin with horseradish sauce, Chuck’s jalapeno queso mac and cheese, ham and Dan-O’s green beans, and several other sides.
Throughout the day, 15 or so first responders came by to grab a plate or unwind; that included EMTs, police officers, and firefighters. The food items were a big hit with everyone who tried then, and many friends and family members stopped in throughout the day to grab a meal.
The Dan-O’s team brought hats, seasoning bottles, and shirts for each full-time member of the department, with a few extras to keep around the station.
Since the Dan-O’s Seasoning supplied most of the food for the event, the local first responders were sure to supply some of the fun. They brought in a firetruck allowing Toothpick to climb up it and shoot the water hose, fulfilling a childhood dream of many.
A few members of the department are active on social media, in case you’d like to get acquainted or follow members of the extended Dan-O’s family. Those are Sam Cornett (EMT_Slammy) and Jared Conrad (hoosier_fishin_n_grillin).
The Dan-O’s team would like to thank the Crawford County EMT team for allowing Dan-O’s to cook for those dedicated to serving their community. And congratulations on the new station!
