Fire departments add tools to their arsenals



January 26, 2018 - 12:00 AM

A pair of recent acquisitions by volunteer fire departments within Allen County have enhanced the ability to respond to emergency calls.

Last March, the Elsmore/Savonburg Fire Department acquired its own set of “Jaws of LIfe” equipment, a hydraulic apparatus designed to cut or pry its way into a wrecked vehicle in order to free those trapped inside.

The Iola and Humboldt fire departments have had such a device for years. Adding one to the arsenal of the east side of the county allows for quicker responses to accidents located there.
