Elkton Fire Dept. spending $48K for new air packs

Posted: Friday, Apr 19th, 2013

BROOKINGS – Ten new air packs and accompanying materials are costing the Elkton Fire Department nearly $48,000 this year. And the department will be able to pay that bill, thanks to help from the city and a savings system within the Brookings County Firefighter’s Association.

The Brookings County Commission approved a request Tuesday for the Brookings County Firefighter’s Association to spend $21,304 from its reserve account for the air packs. Brookings Fire Chief Darrell Hartmann told commissioners that Elkton Fire Department will also spend its $16,000 budget for 2013 on these packs, and the remaining $10,550 will come from the City of Elkton.
