Chapin board seeking estimates to bring down “History House”

Plans are being made to bring down Chapin’s History House. The old house that was once home to Chapin area artifacts has been deteriorating and overrun with visitors of the four-legged variety over the last few years. Trustees voted to get estimates to demolish the structure during last week’s village meeting.

In the fire department report, it was noted five firefighters participated in a controlled house burn west of Arenzville last month.

Another six firemen along with members of the rescue squad joined other area first responders in a training exercise held at Triopia in April. The training was hosted by the Emergency Services Disaster Agency (E.S.D.A.) and included the scenario of an active shooter in the school and a simulated vehicle accident. Fifteen agencies from the Morgan County area were represented.

A request to purchase color-coded certification tags was approved at a cost of $450 with the different colors signifying the level of certification each fire- fighter has obtained. This is expected to make the decision of the placement of firefighters in a critical situation a much easier task. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref=""><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
