Rescue task force wants to move

CLAY COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Clay County Rescue Task Force is looking to move to a new location in Rector.

Currently, the task force is housed in the old county road shop in Piggott.

President Jeff Wolfenbarger said he would like to move the task force to the motor pool shop in Rector behind the old armory.

Wolfenbarger said the shop is bigger, and in a more central location in the county.

He added that moving there could cut down response time by almost 15 minutes.

Wolfenbarger presented the idea to the Rector City Council at their last meeting, but no decision has been made yet.
