All of the firemen and women have been working hard this summer to put out the fires that continue to spark and spread throughout Huntsville and the surrounding areas. This means that they have been spending more money than normal with the same low budget.
The Huntsville Item recently reported on the Pine Prairie Volunteer Fire Department's need for an increased budget from Walker County, which according to the Item and the Pine Prairie Volunteer Fire Department’s Facebook PAGE is $600 per month with no increase in that amount since 1998. Considering how much the cost of living—and especially the cost of gas and fuel—has increased over the years, this budget is clearly not enough. Especially with the record high temperatures (How many days in a row has the temperature been above 100 degrees?) this summer as well as the continuing drought!
