TOWN OF LOUIN GETS 'JAWS OF LIFE'


The Louin Fire Dept recently took delivery of rescue hydraulic spreaders, cutters and rams. Fire Chief Walter Phillips said, "We have been trying for a long time to make this buy and now the Town of Louin has made it possible. These tools will be used in any accident when  someone is trapped in or under autos, farm equipment, large trucks, etc.  Louin Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank the mayor and Town Board of Louin, Jasper County E.O.C. and Stanley Daniel Wrecker Service for support.
