Brad Benard had to plow the hall on the day of the Firemen’s party as it wasn’t plowed, Brad rented the hall on February 3rd, payment for the hall is a wash.  

FD/EMS From Brad Benard: We only had one call last month but it was a big one. We were on scene at the paper mill for 12 hours straight. Our pumper alone pumped roughly 230,000 gallons of water. I would like to have our pumper gone through and serviced. It ran great all 12 hours but really should be looked at seeing as it’s 20 years old. In other news we are renewing our mutual aid contract with the federal forest service. That’s all I have for this month. If I can get an answer about the pumper texted or emailed to me I would greatly appreciate it.-end of Brad report

-Authorized to Service Pumper
