SOUTH ZANESVILLE, Oh — The South Zanesville Fire Department was able to purchase valuable new training equipment thanks to a six thousand dollar grant from the Zavi Shrine Club.

The grant came through the Zavi Shrine Club program which gives money to local fire departments across the state to buy any equipment they might need.

Chief Taylor says he is happy to have the resources to be able to train and ensure his firefighters are ready and able to deal with even the smallest members of the community, although he hopes they will will never have to put those special skills to work.
