Sheridan Fire House News
Well, with Spring like weather out, thought this would be a great time to update the Community. It’s been a busy fall and winter around the FD. Last fall, the district took the initiative to upgrade the station apparatus floor. From the old oil stained concrete to new, easy to clean epoxy. The project lasted several weeks and everything had to be removed from the building. Lots of work by all the members.
In a joint effort between the Serena and Sheridan districts, a UTV and trailer was purchased and will be housed in Serena. The UTV will be priceless in assisting with fires and rescues in remote areas in both districts.
Also, in a joint effort, Serena and Sheridan received a $10,000 grant from Compeer Financial for the purchase of a LUCAS CPR device. Additionally, each department received another unit from LaSalle County for EMS and First Responders. There are now a total of 3 of these devices available!
Good things keep on happening!
