The Poynette-Dekorra Fire Department recently announced that it is a recipient of the TC Energy Build Strong grant. Through this grant, the department was able to secure $2,200 in funding to purchase reflective safety vests for its Fire and EMS personnel. First responder visibility is critical in any response with moving traffic, which poses a significant threat to members. Used in conjunction with appropriate vehicle staging, use of emergency lights, employment of personal guardian lights, and traffic following the Move Over or Slow Down Law, the department’s responders stand a much greater chance in returning home safely after responses to local highways. According to their website, TC Energy offers this grant to “organizations that are integral to local communities.”
