Cribbing project


Thanks to a generous donation from our local 84 Lumber Company in Star City, SCVFD was able to complete a much needed cribbing replacement project. Members spent approximately 50 man hours shaping the various raw lumber into serviceable pieces and placing the completed cribbing on Squad 203. Replacing worn/damaged pieces with newly made pieces and moving existing cribbing from Squad 203 to other units will allow all SCVFD apparatus to greater serve our community.
