Baxter VFD Receives $10,000 to Buy New Air Packs

Posted: Updated:

The Baxter Volunteer Fire Department is getting help to buy new air packs.

The fire department asked the Marion County Commission for funding two years ago.

Commission promised to match any money the department could raise to pay for the more than $20,000 equipment.

Wednesday commission gave the Baxter VFD $10,000, matching a grant the VFD got from the state.

Commission said buying the new air packs is important for protecting firefighters.
