SHARPSBURG - The Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association voted Thursday to seek agreements from surrounding counties over use of the county's food wagon.
The Washington County Rehab unit provides food and beverages to firefighters and rescue workers during emergencies that last several hours.
Since other nearby counties do not have a similar operation, the Washington County food wagon often answers calls in other jurisdictions when other county units also have been called.
But the yearly budget is only $4,000, according to association president Jay Grimes. The unit routinely exceeds the budget and officials must shift funds from other accounts, he said.
