Flint Hills Resources has awarded a $2,500 grant to the Camilla Fire Department to help fund the purchase of new rescue equipment.
The Camilla Fire Department will use the funds to purchase pneumatic chisel rescue tools and a battery-powered reciprocating saw. These industrial-grade tools are used by firefighters when responding to incidents involving vehicle crashes, building and equipment collapses, and agricultural equipment accidents.
“These new tools will enhance our ability to respond swiftly in life-threatening situations,” Camilla Fire Chief Jamie Sullivan said in a news release. “We appreciate this partnership with Flint Hills.”
To start off the new year, Flint Hills Resources will donate $25,000 in grants to local fire departments in its seven ethanol communities.
