What's new with the AURA VOL. FIRE & RESCUE

Aura Vol. Fire Co. has been awarded a Grant from FEMA, for the amount of $20,430.00, plus a 10% match Aura must contribute. The funding will purchase complete sets of Firefighting turn out gear and SCBA masks, in which the Firefighter must wear, to protect themselves from any exposure. The new gear will replace old gear, keeping in compliance with OSHA and NFPA Standards. This a great benefit to the Fire Co. and the community.

Elk Twp. residents can feel at ease that their protectors, are always striding at providing the upmost safety for themselves and anyone in need.The Members of Aura Vol. Fire Co. would like to thank our neighbors for their contributions, support, and always encourage residents to Volunteer their time with us.

We can not do, what we do, without you!!

Thank You.
