Walker County Emergency Services (WCES) received a $500 grant this month from Tennessee American Water. The “Firefighting Support Grant” will be used to purchase new International Fire and Emergency Services Company Officer, 5th Edition training manuals.

WCES Fire Chief Blake Hodge says the manuals will assist in the training of current and future fire company officers on topics including leadership, supervision and health and safety issues. Manuals will be placed in the county’s six career fire stations, with an additional manual being kept in the training division resource library.
