Rural Hall Fire Department continues accepting donations
Feb. 2, 2016/Charlotte Evans
The donations are rolling in! The Tony Marshall Hose Roller Fund, established by Rural Hall Fire Chief Andy Marshall and his family to memorialize Tony’s legacy with the purchase of a portable fire hose roller for the Rural Hall Fire Department, continues to increase nearing its goal.
The portable hose roller, according to Chief Marshall, would reduce the risk of significant injuries by allowing firefighters to roll, transport, re-deploy and re-deck fire hoses quickly, easily and safely while saving energy, time and manpower. An estimated $4,600 is needed to complete the purchase of the time-saving apparatus.
A gofundme.com campaign was created to assist with the fundraising effort and in less than three weeks, $925 has been raised through the website, https://www.gofundme.com/nrje9hzw.
Additional donations received from individuals and businesses in the area increased the Tony Marshall Hose Roller Fund with an additional $3,000, according to Rural Hall officials.
The Rural Hall Fire Department continues to accept gifts for the portable hose roller fund for Station 23, which may be sent to the Town of Rural Hall Fire Department, PO Box 550, Rural Hall, NC 27045. Checks should be earmarked for the Tony Marshall Hose Roller Fund.
