Sunday, Nov. 18 is the last day to contribute to the Culver-Union Township Fire Department where funds are being collected toward the purchase of an aerial fire truck.
The truck will allow firefighters to provide a safe rescue from a three-story building or taller which is a task they can’t do with the current equipment in the fleet. The aerial truck would also give firefighters the ability to fight structure fires from above, pumping water downwards from a safer location.
About $200,000 is needed for the fire truck. A portion of the cost is proposed in the 2019 budget, but not the entire amount. Donated funds currently total more than $160,000. Donations can be made online at https://paygov.us/.
