Local fire departments help Fairfield Fire & Rescue
Local fire departments come to the aid of Fairfield Fire & Rescue, donating thousands of dollars worth of much needed equipment.
The Adamsville fire department and Northport fire department heard about Fairfield's financial troubles -- and how its fire department was in need of medical supplies.
Fairfield fire chief Kevin Sutton says they weren't completely out of the medical supplies, but they were at a critical level. Sutton admits, Fairfield's financial woes are presenting challenges to his department.
"Our job is to make sure it does not affect our citizens," said Sutton. "It's very nice to know that you have people, a brotherhood a sisterhood of the fire service that are there for you when you need it."
Adamsville fire chief Scott Harbison says, "This is a gift. The brotherhood that firefighters have, this just shows you part of it."
Harbison says the City of Adamsville, along with the fire department are going to purchase some additional items to donate to Fairfield Fire & Rescue.
