Ross Van Ness – Wellford Fire Dept Gets $50,000 For New Brush/Rescue Unit

Hey Everyone,

We know it’s been a while since we’ve given any updates on our operations. So we’ll let you guys know what’s been going on!

We recently received $50,000 for the purchase of a new brush/rescue unit. We are now working with Arkansas State Procurement office on this purchase.

More updates soon…

Through a joint venture with the City of Eudora Fire Department we have applied and received a grant for the replacement of an old analog 50w radio system and will upgrade it to a 100w system, which will help both departments on communication distances and notifications, which will increase response times, and aid between our agencies.

We would like to thank everyone for the continued support over the years and look forward to many more years of service!

We will be posting progress updates on our website as well.
