The Upper Yoder Volunteer Fire Company received a $10,000 state grant that will go towards new equipment. Through his work in the community, State Representative Frank Burns acquired the grant which will go towards new emergency lighting and thermal imaging equipment. In 2023, Burns set up a table at the VFC’s open house, where he was able to speak with the fire company about upgrades. “While at the event, members of the fire company approached me about funding for various equipment they were hoping to obtain. I then went to work to make it happen,” Burns said. Charles Snyder, secretary of the volunteer fire company, said that the money will replace old and outdated lighting systems that required an electrical feed and were hard to repair.
