Fire Chief Travis Stern and staff of the Sheridan Fire Department recently met with the employees of The Farmers Bank in Sheridan, Indiana to express their gratitude for The Farmers Bank financial support to help purchase a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). The Sheridan Fire Department had been seeking to purchase SCBAs, to replace their aging equipment. An SCBA is a device worn by firefighters to provide breathable air to protect the firefighter against oxygen deficiency in dangerous and toxic environments.  The equipment is vital to the mission of firefighting and provides first responders the ability to combat hazardous environments that may pose imminent danger to health and life.
