A Tri-State Fire Department is receiving some essentials for the upcoming wildfire season.

The Smith Mills Volunteer Fire Department received canned emergency drinking water this morning to help provide critical hydration to responders.

Edward Utley Junior Inc., a local a Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, dropped off 196 cases to the local department to help support its wildfire response needs.

Officials say maintaining firefighters' hydration during long incidents or disasters is a major safety concern for many departments.

The Smith Mills Volunteer Fire Department says they respond to approximately 25 brush/wildland fires yearly.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
