Lettter to the Editor: Corinth firefighters may survey residents

-A A +A

The Corinth Rural Fire Board and Volunteer Fire Department have received a $100,000 FEMA grant for the purchase of a new 2,000 gallon water transport truck. The new equipment should be in the fleet within the next 45 days.
In addition, the above groups are working with Grant County Fiscal Court in preparation of a $200,000 grant to construct a new six bay firehouse. The building will have one bay devoted to house an ambulance to serve local area residents.
The building grant requires a survey of local residents. Homes contacted will be drawn at random. Corinth volunteer firemen will be contacting the selected residents. The survey should be completed within the next 30 days. All data collected is confidential. The survey form will be completed by the resident, placed in the pre-addressed envelope, sealed and given back to the firemen, or you may mail the return. A stamp will be provided.
The current plan is to have the grant completed by July 1.
