Hometown Bank donates to Redgranite Fire Department

Hometown Bank Senior Vice President Tony Smyrneos presented Redgranite firefighter and EMS Service Director Rob Wilcox with a $500 donation for the Redgranite Area Fire Department’s UTV fundraiser on Feb. 9. The monetary donation presented to Wilcox will go towards the purchase of an all-terrain Utility Vehicle to assist with wild land fires, off-road rescues for deer hunters, snowmobilers and inaccessible calls by the lakes, trails and wooded areas. The Redgranite Area Fire Department is looking to raise a total of $50,000 to purchase the UTV, tracks for UTV, pump and water tank assembly, rescue platform, radio and lighting and all necessary equipment as well as a trailer in order to transport the UTV to emergency scenes.
