FD/EMS From Brad Benard:

We had a total of six calls the past month. Nothing major. I am excited to say that we were approved by Enbridge energy for their “in kind” grant. Where we take ownership of one of their trucks for $1. I was asked if we were interested in it. I jumped on it right away, we can either upgrade our brush truck or use it to pull our side by side. It’s a crew cab with a cap and a boss V plow.  We will take ownership of it Friday October 29th. Lastly, we had another successful corn roast. We made $40,774 total this year. A little better than half of that will go into next year’s corn roast and the rest will go towards outfitting the new truck possibly looking at a volume pump and turnouts. I am trying to save up as much as we can so we have a good chunk of money in two years when we start seriously discussing a hall. That’s all for this month. Thank you
