Kermit VFD upgrades equipment

The Kermit Volunteer Fire Department recently received this Lorance underwater sonar search system for its swift water rescue boat. Chief Wilburn “Tomahawk” Preece said Mingo County Emergency Management Director Doug Goolsby, working closely with WV Homeland Security, was able to acquire the system for the department. Preece said the KVFD swift water rescue team has needed this vital piece of equipment for some time now and credited Goolsby for obtaining it for the department.
