The Northeast Lincoln County Fire Department will be able to more quickly roll out their trucks thanks to a grant from the Central Community Foundation. The department recently acquired a new-to-them pumper truck that narrowly fits inside the fire station. The grant will allow department volunteers to purchase the supplies needed to reframe and add bigger garage doors to the fire department to provide more clearance for the trucks.
The Northeast Lincoln County Fire Department primarily serves northeast Lincoln County, but also provide assistance to neighboring fire departments when needed.
Grants from the Central Community Foundation are made possible by Central Rural Electric Cooperative members who round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar. These funds are put into the foundation, which distributes them to individuals and organizations in need throughout Central’s seven-county service area. The foundation has five fields of interest: healthcare, education, disaster relief, personal need and community purpose.
