Grant aids Inspiration Point

Saturday, March 24, 2012

County Ranger Darrell Bohannon (left) presented a $1,000 Arkansas Forestry Commission grant check to members of the Inspiration Point Fire Department: Tom Kavanaugh, Jim Simmons, Jim Mautte and Bob Howle. The department applied for the grant to purchase wildland fire gear and purchased five sets of protective clothing with the money. Inspiration Point covers approximately 85 square miles on the west end of the county, from Eureka Springs to the county line along U.S. Hwy. 62. Other volunteer fire departments that received $1,000 forestry grant checks were Oak Grove, Green Forest and Holiday Island.
