Present were: Roger Hetzel, Matt Lemke, Kip Gutke, Carl Schmidt and Carol Smith.
Also present were: Chief Dan Folan,
Meeting called to order by Chairman R. Hetzel at 7:00pm
Fire Chief Dan Folan updated us on the new truck, delays due to parts being delayed.
We have a new EMS member that just joined the department, Amber Gardner.
The Fire Department was approved from the DNR for the grant they applied for to purchase personal protective equipment, Smokey sign, and forest fire suppression tools and equipment. They have received the money back already. The amount was $1374.28. This was a fifty percent match. Total being $2748.56.
The Fire and EMS members had a “Become a Volunteer day” for the students from the Almond/Bancroft School. There were several stations demonstrating the different areas the fire and EMS are involved in. There were demonstrations on CPR, Vehicle extrication, Hoses, pumping, trying to hit the barrel with water.
Chief asked the members if he could put 1405 on the sell-trade list, Craig’s list etc. He would like to start the asking price at $5,000.00 or best offer. It is 42 yrs. old. There would be a better chance to sell it at the beginning of summer, rather than later.
Matt Lemke made a motion, seconded by Kip Gutke to sell 1405 at this time. Motion passed.
C. Schmidt made a motion, seconded by K. Gutke to adjourn.
Adjourned at 7:32pm
Respectfully submitted
Carol Smith, Secretary
