    GENERATOR TRENCH


Last week volunteers of the DMR VFD trenched behind the firehouse to install the trunk line from the generator to the building. The trunk line was inserted into 2" conduit and will be buried. We are now able to power the firehouse by generator power when line power is not available.  06/17/17

DMR VFD Support Group President Marvin Voiers / Ham Operator

After Marvin retired in 2015 and moved to the DMR, he took part in a Ham Radio Operator's Class in Jan. 2016.  He passed the "Technicial License" test on 01/30/16, the General Class" test 04/28/16 and then the "Extra Class" license on 03/14/2017.  Being a Ham Operator is a fun hobby.  If you are interested in becoming a Ham Operator or have a question, please contact Marvin at 432-299-0290 and he'll try to help you out. 

The dip tank located south of the Community Center has been cleaned and repairs.  It is now ready in case of fire.  Thanks to all who helped in the project including Julian Pierce, Mike Fryer, Ken Gossett, Will Dodd, Barbara and Sam House, Raymond McKay and Ray Queen.

REPEATER BUILDING REPAIR ON APACHE MOUNTAIN


DMR VFD volunteers, support members and firefighters put a new roof and door on the repeater building. This radio repeater is vital to our safety in the DMR as it allows communication with law enforcement, fire and EMS via radio. This is important given the nature of telephone communications in DMR.  The roof was leaking badly and the door was not secure. After years of neglect the building had become infested with mice, rats and even a snake. The building now has a metal roof and a steel faced door. The worn panels have been replaced with new trim and will soon get a much needed painting.  Special thanks to Benny Masters, Sam House and Willis LeJeune for braving the 100 degree heat to make this happen and to Julian Pierce for spearheading the project.
