Commisioner's Corner

Greetings from the membership at Carrsville VFD!   Sorry it has taken so long to update my column.    Every time I think I can sit down and write an update, something always seems to come up!    We are very excited to announce that our new Tanker should be in the station within the next 5 to 7 days!   If you are in the area, please stop by and take a look!    We are proud to add this 2016 Pierce/Kenworth tanker to our fleet.   With this truck, we upped our water supplied by the tanker from 1800 gallons to 3000 gallons.   This tanker will be fully funded by donations from the community.    As you may know, we have been budgeting for a replacement tanker in the County budget for the last 4 years.   As the years passed, the tanker kept getting bumped out due to financial hardships the County faced.   We were faced with spending thousands of dollars on upgrades, rebuilding and maintenance or order a new truck.  We decided that if we spent a lot of money on the old truck, we would still have a 25-year-old truck.   We opted to put the money into a new truck.   Over the coming years, we will be making annual payments to retire the debt.    We hope when members ask for support for dinners, bbq’s and other fund raisers you will help out.   This is all done for our community!    Because of our efforts, we were able to lower the ISO rating for our community.   This means you will be spending less on homeowner’s insurance.    By working together, we all benefit!    We look forward to continue serving you for many years to come!

Here are some grilling tips that you should keep in mind:


     

SAFETY TIPS

  • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be

            used outdoors.

  • The grill should be placed well away from the

            home, deck railings and out from under eaves and

            overhanging branches.

  • Keep children and pets at least three feet away

            from the grill area.

  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat

            buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.

  • Never leave your grill unattended.
  • Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before

             lighting it.
