Sherman Volunteer Fire Department now has a call box outside. The red box by the main entrance that faces Route 39 contains a phone with a direct link to the 911 dispatch center. The phone is intended to be used by residents who arrive at the firehouse and need to call 911 because their cell phone isn't working, or that they were having some type of emergency and pulled into the firehouse hoping to get assistance. Sherman is a volunteer organization so there are many times when nobody is at the firehouse. There is no need to dial anything with the phone in the red box, it will immediately connect to the dispatch center.
