When Mat Post asked himself, “What can we do as a community to help the tornado victims?” his fellow volunteer firefighters answered the call with enough donations of turn out gear, hoses and serviceable fire equipment to fill three trailers. Along with the apparatus, the Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Company decided to donate an entire fire truck, Engine 12. Within a couple of days of putting out the word for donations, which came in from area fire companies, a crew of volunteers was ready to set out to Mayfield, Kentucky, to present the Mayfield-Graves County Fire and Rescue with nearly $2 million worth of gear. The fire company in Kentucky lost everything, including their station house, in the recent tornados.
