The Baxter Fire Department held its fourth annual Fireman’s Hog Roast June 2 at the fire station. The event acted as a fundraiser for upcoming projects.
Jasper County has updated their radio communication network, and the department will need to update its system before 2020. The air cylinders and SCBA packs will need to be replaced as approach the end of their 15 year service life. This project will also need to be completed by 2020.
