Sumatra fire department continues to grow


The Sumatra Volunteer Fire Department is growing, and continues to seek local residents for help.

A recent raffle of a 50-quart Pelican ice cooler, donated by Taylor’s Building Supply, raised more than $500 for the department. Apalachicola’s Joe Gander was the winner

The new fire chief, Dakota Boone, was on hand for the presentation.

“We want to thank Ken and Kim Fish at Taylor’s for their continuous support, as well as Tiffin Furniture and Art Gallery, and Ace Hardware for their donations,” said Jerry Alford, an active member of the department.

He said the department now has about a half-dozen firefighters, and is looking for more. In Oct. 2020, the department completed  construction of a new building.

For more information, call Alford at 850-899-6565 or Boone at 850-643-7386.
