Deep Gap Receives Grant
Deep Gap Fire welcomed North Carolina State Fire Marshal/Department of Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey & US Representative Virginia Foxx to our station for the delivery of a $24,850 grant check. This grant has covered 4 interoperability radios & 7 sets of turnout gear.
In fact, the radios have already been put to good use during a fire alarm activation and incident command could not get reception on our normal dispatch channel and had to switch to specialty channel to talk to communications.
Thank you to Kayla Lasure from the Watauga Democrat for putting together a great article detailing our volunteer firefighter recruitment efforts!
