Lily Volunteer FD to receive breathing apparatus

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

The Lily Volunteer Fire Department will get a self-contained breathing apparatus through a grant process approved in a resolution by the Laurel County Fiscal Court.

The apparatus will allow firefighters to enter burning buildings filled with smoke.

Also two retired members of the United Auto Workers from Somerset came to present a $1,080 check from the UAW to the United Way in Laurel County to help those who are still in need after the tornados hit northern Laurel County in March.

Judge/Executive David Westerfield was appointed to the board of the Laurel County Emergency Dispatch Center.

In other business, the court approved a bid for an adoption/rescue animal trailer that cost $44,000.

It also approved a state surplus dump truck at $12,000.

The October fiscal court meeting for Thursday, Oct. 25, has been rescheduled for 9 a.m. on Oct. 31.
