(JRFD Facebook)  The Jamestown Rural Fire Department has recently received, a $5,000 grant, from the  North Dakota Community Foundation.

The Rural Fire Department says, the grant dollars will be put towards the purchase of a new grass unit similar to the one in the background of the picture posted in this story, at CSiNewsNow.com.   These units help them reach hard-to-reach places where their larger trucks cannot go.

The Rural Fire Department sends out  big thank you to the North Dakota Community Foundation.
