Fire training facility will benefit county, city and GP departments

Public Relations Manager Scott Mixon presented the check to the Taylor County Commission last week, praising the leadership of Taylor County Fire-Rescue Chief Dan Cassel and GP Safety Manager Brian Miller in developing a plan for the facility.
