Pulaski Fire Department gets grant

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Pulaski Fire Chief Bill Webb will be getting a new command vehicle, thanks to grant assistance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development agency. Ninth District Congressman Rick Boucher announced the funding Wednesday afternoon.
Boucher said the $18,150 grant will assist the town in the purchase of a new SUV for Webb.
“This provision of federal funding will enable the purchase of a new command vehicle for (Webb), which will allow him to more rapidly reach the scene of emergencies to coordinate the Fire Department’s response,” Boucher said.
During a budget hearing earlier this year, Webb indicated he needed a new command vehicle because his present vehicle has become unreliable and expensive to maintain.
The new vehicle will replace the older one, according to Boucher.
The fire department serves the town and areas of Pulaski County, and has 30 members, with 10 being paid and 20 being volunteers.
“I am pleased that the Rural Development Agency has provided this funding to the Town of Pulaski for its fire department,” said Boucher.
“It is important to ensure that our fire and rescue personnel have access to the best equipment, and today’s announcement will help further this goal,” Boucher said.
