On Monday evening, June 10, the White Bluff-Rye Hill Volunteer Fire Department was presented with a $3,250 grant from the Arkansas Fire Prevention Commission.
According to White Bluff-Rye Hill VFD President/Fire Marshal Dale Seiter, the department had applied for the grant to assist with their fire safety and prevention programs, which are hosted throughout the year.
The department was chosen by the Fire Prevention Commission in 2019 to receive one of the grants. Ronnie Rogers with the Arkansas Fire Prevention Commission presented the check to Seiter and Chief Jim Almond.
“The White Bluff-Rye Hill V.F.D. believes that the Fire Safety and Prevention Programs are a vital part of what we do in serving our communities,” commented Seiter. “It is not just about extinguishing fires and responding to emergency calls. It is about being a part of a community and teaching adults and children alike about Fire Safety and Prevention. Thanks to the Arkansas Fire Prevention Commission for choosing the White Bluff-Rye Hill VFD for this grant. It will be put to great use!”
