Community Service Project Keeps Scout’s Hometown Safe


The small community of Sand Coulee, Montana, was full of unmarked roads, which could be a problem when volunteer firefighters were trying to get to the site of an emergency.

Local Boy Scout Levi Olson has helped fix the problem by coordinating a project that saw the installation of 16 street signs.

“I’m putting these up because if somebody calls in and says that they live on Dahns Street, they don’t know where Dahns Street is, so they just have to look for smoke, which isn’t especially effective,” Levi told KRTV news.
