Glencoe VFD

Dear Editor:

This letter is in response to a letter on April 9.

A couple of things need corrected or clarified, so that people are not getting wrong information.

First, the writer mentioned that the Smith Township Volunteer Fire Department received 'several' trucks from the Glencoe Fire Department.

If two means several, then, yes, that statement is correct. In fact what was actually received was one pumper truck and one ambulance. The brush truck that is still in the building in Glencoe belongs to the Cumberland Trail Fire District.

Second, he stated that Smith Township VFD does not provide fire service to the Glencoe area. Actually, Smith Twp. VFD is an automatic mutual aid response department for Cumberland Trail to the Glencoe area.

I can only hope and pray that further misconceptions do not happen.
