Miami County Emergency Management Coordinator Mark Whelan points out some features of the Osawatomie Volunteer Fire Department’s new 3,000-gallon tanker/tender to county commissioners on April 14. The tender was a key piece of equipment used to battle a raging house fire on Sept. 24.

The County Commission recently learned how firefighters from multiple agencies worked in concert to battle a large house fire.

And commissioners were told that a 3,000-gallon tanker/tender they purchased for the Osawatomie Volunteer Fire Department proved to be a wise investment.
