Eagles Donate Gas Detector

Ava’s Fraternal Order of Eagles recently donated a gas leak detector to the Ava Fire Department. Previously, firefighters would have to enter an area with a suspected leak and rely upon their own sense of smell or body’s reaction to determine if there was a live leak. The Eagles held a number of fundraisers in order to purchase the unit.
