I think this is terrific. I know that in the past the S.F.D. refused help. Thank goodness we have a new fire chief. I hope he does not let some of the others talk him out of accepting help. It is pretty bad when P.F.D. has newer trucks and safer equipment. I think this is terrific that someone not from here is willing to help us. I hope this rubs of on the locals also. Thank you Gregory Gregory!! Welcome to our little town.

“Raising funds could go for a Jaws of Life. We had one once, but it was so old and it took twice as long to get people out,” Jones said. Why would this person say this when we still have Jaws of Life and use it when it is needed?

It is sad when your local fire department comprised of volunteers is woefully under equiped. And it is a wonderful gift from someone out of state to donate help. As for being worse off then the Peru Fire Dept, bear in mind they worked hard to get the equipment they have. This including looking for grants, making long trips to pickup Trucks and they were blessed to be "adopted" by Thompson Fire Company in Pennsylvania. They also hold fundraisers faithfully. Thanks to the hard work of Rick Peel and Janet Hartley and the other volunteers of the Peru Fire Department Peru is now well equipped to fight fires. Y'all are the greatest and Peru is blessed to have you.
