Major News Announcement from Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Company.
The Volunteers of the Maugansville Fire Company have signed a contract to buy a replacement rescue squad. The squad which is a specialized emergency apparatus carries tools and equipment used in rescues such as automobile accidents, water rescues, specialized rescue such as injured workers, farming accidents. The squad’s vast number of tools and specialized equipment is also used at fire scenes. Maugansville Firefighters take specialized training to be able to acquire skills needed to use the equipment. Maugansville current squad has ran many calls and saved many lives. The new squad will carry more modern equipment which is needed in today’s world to be effective. The new squad was made possible by the efforts of our volunteers working the numerous fundraisers held throughout the year and the wonderful support we get from the community. The apparatus committee played a major role in getting the best buy for the buck. Many meetings were held over a four-year period designing the new squad. The finance committee also played a major role making sure the company could make the purchase. Mack truck gave a great deal on the cab and chassis for new squad. The body for the squad will be built by Four Guys. We hope to take delivery of the squad around November 2021.
The company has recently had to dip deeply into its rainy-day fund due to a couple of unforeseen issues. The biggest hit to our company was the coved -19 pandemic which stopped our fund-raising efforts and cost 25,000 +. The tanker is out getting a leaking tank replaced and as recent as this past week the air-conditioning unit for our day room has went out and needs replaced. We need your support so please visit our fund raisers and participate in the Queen Of Hearts drawing each week and together we will keep the emergency services alive in Maugansville. Next Chicken BBQ is Saturday June 20th.
