NORTH PLATTE, Neb - With the rains this week, wildfires are probably the furthest thing from our minds right now, but it was only a week ago that we were talking about how dry it is, and how strung out many of our rural fire departments must feel. We also know how quickly the weather can change.
The dry weather earlier this year led two North Platte businessmen to challenge either other to raise the most donations of bottled water that would ultimately be donated to rural fire departments around the area. Agri-Affiliates' Chase Dodson and State Farm Insurance agent Jordan Boston are on a crusade to collect the most bottles of water for a good cause. (CLICK on Podcast To Hear Full Interview)
The Post will be anchoring a Live Broadcast from 4-6 this Wednesday at North Platte Fire Department Station One to see who collects the most water. You can make donations by contacting Agri-Affiliates in North Platte or Jordan Boston Insurance in the Westfield Shopping center in North Platte.
