Assistant fire chief advocates the use of fire hydrants

Landfill engineer addresses fiscal court

By Roger McKinney, Reporter

Northern Pendleton Assistant Fire Chief Jerry Brun talked to the fiscal court about the installation of fire hydrants at strategic locations throughout Pendleton County. He said that the utilization of hydrants would be more effective and much safer than pumping from a tanker. It was estimated that each hydrant would cost $2,000 or more to install. Judge/Executive Henry Bertram said that he certainly supported the idea and would be willing to work with the county fire departments and water districts to reach a realistic goal of installation.
