Jonesville Purchases Fire Department Equipment
The Jonesville City Council approved the purchase of a battery-operated cutter and spreader at their meeting on August 21st. This equipment is used by the Fire Department to assist in the extrication of automobile crash victims and for other rescues from small spaces. The battery-operated equipment will replace existing hydraulic tools, no longer certified for use on some modern automotive metals. The new tools are also lighter weight than older tools, making them quicker and easier for emergency personnel to set up and operate.
Members of the Jonesville Fire Department presented the City Council with a check in the amount of $10,700 to cover half of the cost of the new equipment. The donation was made possible from proceeds of the Department’s pork supper and winter cash raffle that was hosted at the Red Fox Sportsman’s Club in February. Proceeds from the 2018 Frank Beck Chevrolet golf scramble also supported the purchase.
“The Jonesville City Council is committed to supplying our firefighters with all the equipment that is necessary for them to be safe while they work to keep the community safe,” said Mayor Gerry Arno. “We appreciate the Department’s efforts to raise funds and to reduce the cost to taxpayers.”
Fire Chief Dean Adair thanked the many individuals and businesses that supported the cash raffle and pork supper. “The Department enjoys getting together at these events, grilling and getting out into the community.”
The Jonesville Fire Department is a volunteer department, and is always looking for new members. All that is needed is a desire to serve the community. Training and equipment are provided. Anyone interested in serving can complete an application from the City of Jonesville website, www.jonesville.org or stop into City Hall, 265 E. Chicago Street.
