Sherry Baine says she's satisfied with the way Samson’s volunteer fire department has continued to keep her and her community safe.
"I just feel like our whole community is safer since we have such a great fire department and they keep up with the equipment and everything's upgraded. It makes us feel more safe here in Samson."
And to prove itself to the rest of the community, Samson’s volunteer fire department held an open house on Sunday to show off it's two new additions.
"We had to replace two vehicles. We got a new service vehicle and a new engine. We hadn't had an open house in a while and I just felt like I wanted the community and the citizens of Samson to know what we're doing."
Chief lowery says the new equipment was essential to keeping the town safe.
"We needed to upgrade. We had a service truck that was old and needed to be replaced. So we're just trying to strive to keep our fleet up and to try to keep our safety here where we need it."
"But the addition of these new fire trucks not only keeps Samson safe, it also helps homeowners save money."
"First of all it's for protection of life, but also by maintaining equipment we get a lower I-S-O rating, which is an insurance rating. And the lower your insurance rating is, the lower that your homeowners insurance is. So it's important not only for the insurance rating but also for having the equipment to respond to emergencies if we have them."
So next time the fire comes a'blazing, the Samson volunteer fire department will be ready.
