An agreement between McCains Foods and the Easton Fire Department enables employees who serve as firefighters the ability to leave work when needed to respond to a call. Richard Wark, Fire Instructor for the Maine Fire Service Institute, says it's a unique plan, making Easton's volunteer fire department one of the few in the state that's fairly well staffed.
Chief Darrell White of the Presque Isle Fire Department says sprinkler systems can make a big difference and save lives.
Going green to save some green! That's what the folks over at the Limestone Water and Sewer District are doing. A presentation was held earlier today to unveil their solar panel project. Chuck Kelley, trustee for the district, says construction got underway last fall and was completed this winter.
