Redding firefighters offering water hauls

The Redding Township Volunteer Fire Department is filling pools again this year.

Firefighters already have begun to do that, and the schedule is filling up quick, so give Chief Matt Roy a call at 812-528-1792 to schedule a pool fill.

The department also fills ponds, wells and drinking troughs for livestock.

“If you need water, we have it,” Roy said. “We are a volunteer department, and this is a fundraiser to help buy new equipment, send our members through training to better serve the community and pay for expenses. Any size pool and any type in any location, we have you covered.”
