Anheuser-Busch is delivering about 300,000 cans of emergency drinking water to 26 volunteer fire departments, including Grant County Fire District 3 in Quincy. The water delivery is in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to provide critical hydration to first responders in advance of wildfire season. Grant County Fire District 3 is lone volunteer department in the state receiving the donation. “Eighty-three percent of the nation’s fire departments, which protect our communities from hazards of all kinds, are all- or mostly-volunteer,” said Steve Hirsch, chair of the NVFC. “Funding for needed resources is a constant challenge for many of these departments, making this donation even more important as it directly supports the health and safety of our firefighters and the communities they serve.” Anheuser-Busch worked directly with the NVFC to select some of the most vulnerable markets across the country to receive the initial water delivery.
