West Unity Chamber Gifts Fire Company

At their meet­ing last evening, Assis­tant Fire Chief Jim Eisel told the Board of the West Unity Area Cham­ber of Com­merce the depart­ment is in need of $438 to pur­chase a radio head­set which would be used by the fire­fight­ers oper­at­ing the pumper dur­ing emer­gency calls.

The depart­ment already has pur­chased one head­set, with the money com­ing from the department’s pan­cake break­fast fundraiser.

The Cham­ber board, after a brief dis­cus­sion, voted to donate half the cost„„ or about $219, to the fire depart­ment.
