DeLand Fire Department now has two “jaws of life” thanks to a grant, reports The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
The fire department posted to Facebook, “Extending a huge thank you to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs restaurant for the $33,180 grant!
Following this difficult year, the needed funding was used to purchase vehicle extrication tools.
We are so grateful to those who opened their hearts as the country closed down, helping us keep DeLand safer than ever.”
The new battery-powered equipment will replace two outdated machines that operate with hydraulic hoses. The new equipment is just as powerful and does not require a generator.
