District considering auction of fire equipment

October 11, 2013

COVENTRY — With three stations closed and some of the equipment and apparatus out of date or out of commission, members of the board of directors are considering putting some equipment and apparatus up for auction.

“North Kingstown Fire Department did it and put out advertisements to the department of pubic works, marinas and fire district publications because they had extra compressors, generators — for a fire station, that could generate a lot of money,” said board member Dan Lantz. “We could put that money into a separate account for future equipment purchases.”
