Emergency Services District 7, Greenwood VFD win fire grants

(Continued)

Greenwood is planning an ice-cream social open house later this year, most likely in May, to help residents of the Greenwood area plan their strategies to be ready, to get set and to be prepared to go when threatened by wildfire.

Both the National Weather Service and the Texas Forest Service are predicting a high probability of more devastating fires over the next several years as we face the continued threat of drought.

“Grants like this are very important to ESDs because they fund projects that we couldn’t fund with our tax dollars,” said ESD 7 President Johnie Herbert. “Without these grants we wouldn’t be doing as complete a job of supporting our citizens.”
