Thanks to donations and fundraising efforts by the Nichols Fire Department, the 16 members of the firefighting crews have new gear from head to toe, replacing firefighting uniforms reaching an expired 10 years of age. Fire Chief Kevin Flynn, now in his fourth year in command, said he wanted to get “the latest and the greatest” gear for his volunteers, noting there have been a lot of technology changes in firefighting gear to steer away from cancer-causing smoke and keep firefighters safe. The new gear replaces outfits that actually expired in October of last year, but due to the pandemic, it took a little longer to raise the funds needed to buy the new gear.
