Fundraising for the Fire House

By Rachel Campbell
The Gunlock Fire Department sold tee shirts as a fund raiser to raise money to build a new fire house at the Rodeo in July. At the NWSSD Fire Board meeting in June, it was discovered that the only grant big enough to cover the cost of a new fire station, is a Federal Grant which has to be monetarily met to a certain, but small, percentage.
In order to apply for other government grants, the fire station must have certain requirements which include things such as a bathroom and a hazardous material collection station that fire fighters that may come in contact with such materials can decontaminate in.
