New Equipment On The Way To Fire Company Following Fire Disaster

The Flo­rence Town­ship fire depart­ment suf­fered a dev­as­tat­ing fire May 2nd. The fire sta­tion was heav­ily dam­aged, the all four of the township’s fire trucks were destroyed in the blaze. The Bryan Times today, is report­ing that a spe­cial meet­ing was called by the Bryan City Counci on Tues­day, and Bryan offi­cials have agreed to lease a fully equipped reserve engine to Flo­rence Town­ship… for just $1 a year. The truck is avail­able imme­di­ately. On May 2nd, the Flo­rence Town­ship Fire Depart­ment lost two engines, a tanker and a grass rig, along with lad­ders, hoses, hel­mets and pro­tec­tive gear in that fire. The total dol­lar amount of the loss has still not been totalled, and while the offi­cial cause of the blaze has yet to be deter­mined, so far, it is believed to have orig­i­nated in one of the vehi­cles, and is being called elec­tri­cal in nature. Mean­while, the city of Wauseon also donated a fire engine and the Lucas County Com­mis­sion­ers agreed to donate a fire res­cue truck to the town­ship on Tues­day too.
