BVFD grant


Belmont Volunteer Fire Department receives a grant for $10,000 to purchase an electric Stryker power cot for the department from South Central Power. Members of the department said this will help make things easier because they will not have to do any lifting, it is wider, and can hold up to 700 pounds. This can help prevent injuries to the fire department members, since they will no longer have to strain their backs.
