New Extrication Equipment Awarded
We recently received new extrication equipment awarded to us by Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation late in 2017.

The tools are a battery operated combination cutter and spreader which enable our firefighters to cut and separate parts of a vehicle to access trapped patients. The tools are portable and immediately ready for service.

Thank you Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for equipping us with these invaluable rescue tools!
