The Chalybeate Fire Department Board of Directors have announced a fundraiser to help them in their need to replace some equipment that sustained damage during the night of the fire at Laura's Hilltop Restaurant.
Two valves from one of their trucks froze and burst during the single digit temperatures and are in the process of being replaced. Board members also say they are in need of turnout gear, the official term for firefighter's uniform gear, which they say is worn past the point of use.
The fire department is featuring RADA Cutlery as an online fundraiser. You can click directly on the link for Chalybeate VFD on the RADA website. Your order will be shipped directly to your home and the fire department will receive 40% of the total sale.
All county fire departments are 100% volunteer run. The Chalybeate VFD Board of Directors are made up of Danny Goins, Travis Madison, Scott Skaggs, Clifford Ray, Robin Vincent, Joe Durbin, and Allison Holland.
