(June 1, 2021) Their grant of $12,500 will be used to purchase extrication equipment. In their application they wrote, “This will allow us to have a piece of extrication equipment at our most remote station, which will allow us a more direct response to incidents in that area. Currently if a vehicle accident happens in this area a firefighter might have to respond to the station with extrication if entrapment is reported, saving us valuable time.”
It’s my pleasure to help.
(Nov. 4, 2021) The equipment finally arrived!
Greg Stensler wrote, “We are ecstatic to report that we have received our battery operated Hurst combi extrication tool. This tool will allow us a quick set up when needed and rapid extrication when needed. We will be holding a training on the tool in the near future so all our members are properly trained. We would like to thank you for this opportunity again. We are excited to have this tool to better serve our community when the need arises.”
