Van Wert Elks #1197 Helps Local Fire Department.

Van Wert Elks Lodge #1197, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, recently donated a Fire Hose Inflation System to the Convoy Fire and EMS. The system is used to inflate a section of fire hose so it can be pulled across a stream or pond to assist in the rescue of someone in the water.

The monies were received by the lodge from the Elks National Foundation in the form of a Gratitude Grant.      

Van Wert Elks Lodge is proud to be able to assist the Convoy Fire Department as they provide protection to the residents of Convoy and the surrounding area.
