Rainsville applies for storm shelter grant

Rainsville Fire Chief Willimac Wright said a proposed grant funds a multi-functional facility that could be used as an infectious disease testing or vaccination site, pole precinct or voting precinct, or a community storm shelter that houses 99 people and one wheelchair.

The Rainsville City Council last week discussed moving forward with the DeKalb County Emergency Management Agency’s facility grant.

Mayor Rodger Lingerfelt said the EMA's "100 person facility grant" involves placing a storm shelter structure somewhere in the City of Rainsville.
