January 15th, 2013 Harvest Volunteer Fire Department was awarded a FEMA grant to build a Community Safe Room that will house almost 500 people in the event of severe weather. The Safe Room will be staffed by volunteers and managed by the Harvest Volunteer Fire Department. But now they need your help.
The total cost of the community storm shelter will be $954,000, with the majority of the funding provided by FEMA. A supplemental grant from the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund (GERF) was recently approved for $119,000.
As a result, $119,000 remains to be raised in order for this shelter to become a reality. The entire community needs to be involved.
