PHOTOS: The Green Oak Township Fire Department has received a brand new rescue boat thanks to a grant. The grant comes from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. Among the funding areas is providing first responders with lifesaving equipment. The new boat was delivered to the Main Fire Station 81 on Wednesday afternoon. Fire Chief Kevin Gentry tells WHMI this is the third grant they’ve received from Firehouse Subs, noting they previously received a LUCAS automated CPR machine and several sets of turnout gear. For this grant, he says they sought to get a new rescue boat with the forthcoming opening of the new fire headquarters at Silver Lake Road and Whitmore Lake Road – which will allow the department to have a rescue boat both on the Silver Lake side and at the Rushton Road Fire Station where their current boat sits.
