Chief details fire department needs
Wadena Fire Chief Dean Uselman said that while a few updates to his department can wait due to 2011 budget restrictions, some equipment needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
The 2011 budget notes sheets requested a "multiple gas meter for flammable and hazardous gases for safety testing" which would cost $1,000.
He said the department has an unreliable, secondhand gas meter.
"We are not comfortable using it," he said.
