RED LAKE-After acquiring funding, the Red Lake Band purchased two new fire trucks which were delivered to the Red Lake District Fire Hall on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

The tribe ordered the two pumpers to serve the community areas of Ponemah and Red Lake with adequate fire safety and protection. Both grant funds and finance were acquired to make these purchases.

New Red Lake and Ponemah Fire Departments meanwhile are under construction in both communities. The tribe's community fire departments are responsible for providing fire suppression, prevention, inspections, safety education and investigate all suspicious fires.

Four state-of-the-art ambulances were also purchased earlier this year, two for Red Lake and two for Ponemah, with a combination of a USDA Loan and Grant.
