The Salem Elks Lodge #305 obtained a $750 Community Service Grant from the Ohio Elks Association upon receiving a request from the Perry Township Vol. F.D. for assistance in purchasing the quick attach monitor. This allows the hose to be hands free, while supplying a steady flow of water to a hot spot or protecting an adjacent structure during a fire. The pressure of the hose pushes the tripod structure into the ground, keeping it stationary.According to the Chief, this frees up 3 - 4 firefighters for other duties.
