Help These Big Country Firefighters Complete Their New Station
Fire Chief Gary Young says their newest fire trucks don't fit inside the old, outdated ECCA fire station, the stalls are too short and narrow. Young says "we need a new fire station to accommodate the updated equipment.
The construction date of the new fire station was unknown. Is it a coincidence that construction began the minute Gary stopped into the studio to talk about their major fundraiser coming up?
Chief Young had just gotten the words out of his mouth that the foundation needed to be laid out, formed and poured but he didn't know when. Then, his phone went off alerting him to the good news.
The concrete guys sharing photos of the forms being laid out. The smile on the Chief's face was like that of a kid in a candy store. Gary was happy.
The question now is, how are they going to pay for their new firehouse? The Answer is, with their annual fundraiser called the Wild/Mild Bunch Bonanza Saturday, January 29th. The reason for the Wild to Mild name change is because as Gary says, "we're all getting older and there ain't nothing wild about us."
