Eastern Slope Donates $500 for Last Chance fire response

posted Aug 28, 2012, 4:23 PM by Hugo Volunteer Fire Department
Eastern Slope Rural Telephone Association's Board of Directors generously elected to donate $500.00 to the Hugo Volunteer Fire Department.  The Hugo Volunteer Fire Department responded to a call for mutual aid to Last Chance to battle a fast moving fire which burned more than 45,000 acres (approx. 70 square miles) in late June.  Eastern Slope had numerous assets in the area and this donation to the Hugo department--as well as other responding agencies--is a tangible and much appreciated "thank you."
