REMC Donates to New Market Firefighters

REMC Multi-County Community Trust (Operation Roundup) recently awarded $3,000 to New Market Community Volunteer Fire Department to assist in the purchase of a backup generator. The importance of this backup power supply is a direct link to the communications readiness and always ready status of the fire apparatus. Secondary applications include the facility being used as a public shelter for catastrophic weather conditions as well as tactical operations for local emergency management.

Accepting the award are, from left, Brian Cosby, volunteer firefighter; Ryan Adams, assistant secretary/treasurer; Tracy Budd, fire chief; Ken Rice, NMCVFD board member; Eric Brewer, NMCVFD board president.
