This week has put a strain on the volunteer fire departments of Coleman County, the men and women, as well as the equipment and supplies.  NOW is a good time to donate to the VFD for your area of the county.  Above are photos of a letter sent out to the county residents with addresses for the 9 fire departments in the county - please send what you can to assist them in purchasing the fuel and supplies needed, as well as pay for repairs to equipment being used.  THANK YOU TO OUR RESPONDERS FOR TAKING CARE OF OUR COMMUNITIES!  ALSO... HELP prevent fires by checking for things that could drag from vehicles and trailers, creating sparks; to never toss cigarettes; not to weld without water accessible; and not to burn anything including grilling in this dry weather!
