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.
Also at last night’s Chamber meeting…
