‘Break the Silence’ event in IM

A “Break the Silence” event took place Tuesday in Iron Mountain with squad cars, fire engines, ambulances and citizens driving from the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office to First Presbyterian Church in Kingsford with sirens blaring and horns sounding. The annual event aims to shine a light on domestic violence. Each year, the Caring House in Iron Mountain provides services to more than 500 individuals, handles 1,400 crisis calls and provides nearly 2,000 bed nights. (Terri Castelaz/Daily News photo)
