Eclectic (AL) Fire Department Upgrades Fire Equipment

The Eclectic Fire Department purchased new oxygen tanks and masks with a grant of over $60,000, reports Tallapoosa Publishers, Inc.

The new equipment replaces gear in the department’s inventory from the early 1990s. The equipment is an important piece to keeping firefighters safe when answering calls even beyond house fires.

Some recent calls where EFD had to respond and use its self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) gear include assisting other fire departments.
