  • Rockwood Fall Festival A Success

    The City of Rockwood held its annual Rockwood Fall Festival on Saturday, October 25, 2008, from 10 AM to 7 PM. WRCVFD attended, giving out the smoke alarm safety message "Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries." November 2 is the date this year that we turn back our clocks for the end of Daylight Savings Time. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped!

    Volunteers provided treats for the children and netted over $200 in donations.

  • No Pumper Grant from FEMA This Fall; WRCVFD To Try Again This Spring

    The West Roane community is growing and our firefighters are short of equipment too often. To help alleviate this problem, WRCVFD applied for a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) to purchase a much-needed new pumper truck (see News - March 25, 2008). Once awarded, West Roane could receive as much as $200,000. The Assistance to Firefighters Grant is a matching grant; WRCVFD must pay 5% of the total cost of the equipment.

    Unfortunately, FEMA did not give West Roane the grant this fall. Volunteers will try again this Spring.

    Many thanks again to those generous folks who provided the required matching funds without which no application nor grant would be possible.
