The Toledo City Council voted Wednesday night to use a county emergency preparedness grant toward the project. With the school district, city and Toledo Fire Department working together, a total of $15,000 will be used to purchase items such as tents, water tanks and rain ponchos for 750 people.

“We determined this, in the past, as an assembling point for any major disaster we have,” Fire Chief Will Ewing said of the elementary school site.
