PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth Volunteer Firefighters are grateful for the support from the community as they continue to raise the needed funds for a training tower.
The department will be using the donations received from a mailing to local residents a few weeks ago to purchase the first two parts of a training facility that comes at a cost of $20,000.
The parts are built from shipping crates that have been galvanized and modified with such accessories as doors, windows, stairs, and movable partitions.
