The by-laws cover membership Qualifications, officer elections. and present the rules by which the department will be operated. Nash County Fire Marshal Per ry O'Berry explained each phase of the by-laws to the group and offered instruction in adding or taking from the laws if the need occurs; Also brought but by O'Ber- ry was the need for annual af fairs, such as barbecue suppers,1 for raising funds w the depart-; ment. "There is one thing you will need to keep the department going," tie said, and that is money." The group, after soliciting funds on their own, will go before the Nash County Board of Commis sioners (o request an initial fund of $1,500 to buy a truck and equipment. Two-way radio equipment, a mobile set lor the truck and a stationary set for the base station, will be partially paid for by tne county and by Civil Defense.
