BELLEFONTE TO BUY NEW FIRE APPARATUS
Bellefonte, Pa.—The council at its regular meeting approved the purchase of two triple combination pumpers for the two fire companies, to be of a type approved by the council on the recommendation of the fire and police departments. It is planned to hold several public meetings in order to get the opinion of the citizens and the fire companies on the type of apparatus that is desired. It is estimated that approximately $20,000 will be expended for this purpose.
Several disastrous fires, one of which recently destroyed the Bellefonte Academy building, have forcibly demonstrated the need of more efficient fire-fighting apparatus.
