New Ross Van Ness Wellford FD Rescue Unit Makes Debut In Eudora Arkansas

On Wednesday, Ross Van Ness – Wellford Fire Department received delivery of our new Fouts Brothers Rescue unit! The truck will be housed at our Station 1 located on Ross Van Ness RD.

We would like to thank the following Organizations/Agencies for making the contributions to complete this project.

Bob White Memorial Foundation – $75,000
King Foundation – $25,000
U.S. Department of Agriculture – $50,000

The department has worked since late 2018 to secure the needed funding. In 2017, the Department was awarded $75,000 by FEMA for rescue/extrication equipment. Now this equipment has a vehicle designed to carry it. This unit will respond to all traffic accidents as well as vehicle and structure fires.
