SENTINEL TRIBUNE ON R00E00COR]E) Wednesday, March 13, 2013 Page 2 Westbrook Fire Department looking fc,r support fires, no money is provided. Last year, there were four- teen calls with three of them being mutual aids. Currently, there are 23 volunteers with the depart- ment. Each volunteer is measured and supplied with customized special cloth- ing. The suits should be replaced every ten years. Each suit costs over $1400. In 2004, the department received a grant for 19 suits. Those suits should be replaced in 2014. Many of the firefighters are using suits purchased in the 90s. Tony Staples has the oldest suit - we couldn't even read the date on the suit! Madson would like to implement a program with automatic replacement of five suits the liners pulled out. The current gloves also are stiff and inflexible in cold weather. A couple recently generously donated money to purchase 10 sets of new gloves. These gloves have sewn in liners and retain flexibility. Madson said that in the past, the department has been able to obtain grants for purchasing equipment. However, like many gov- ernment programs, less money is available. So, they are turning to fundrais- ing events. They recently held a soup and sandwich dinner with raffle and raised about $1200. Anyone who wishes to make a donation to the Fire Department can drop it off Curtis Madson pointing out Tony Staples' fire gear. Submitted photo By Connine Rupp The Westbrook Volunteer Fire Department is looking for community support to fund needed improvements to supplies and equipment. Fire Chief Curtis Madson explained that although purchase the more expen- sive replacement vehicles. For example, money from CDs purchased a used pumper truck in 2011. An additional $10,000 was used to provide essential equipment for the truck. COTTONWOOD COUNTY COURT March 4-8, 2013 Speeding: $120.00 - Erika A. Anderson, Sioux Falls, SD; Jonathan P.
