VIDEO: The Northwest Fire District is getting new vehicle extrication tools thanks to grant money. According to a press release from the agency, the $31,900 grant from the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety will go towards the rescue tools. Captain Brian Keeley says the main difference between the extrication equipment they're using now compared to the new stuff is the power source. The cutter, spreaders and ram purchased are battery operated. The current equipment used is gas-operated.
