A donation of $10,000 has been made to the Knoxville Fire Department for the purchase of new fire equipment, reports The Register-Mail.
The trustees believe this to be the largest non-memorial donation the KFD or the district has ever received.
Equipment purchased included the following:
— High-volume, rechargeable, battery-powered, professional grade fire fan to remove smoke in a structure following a fire
— Three rechargeable, battery-powered, portable spotlights to be used at a fire or emergency scene
— Eight air tank brackets for fire trucks to hold air tanks until needed by firefighters
— One new state-of-the-art thermal camera
— Rechargeable and battery-powered Green Custom Landing Zone Kit for safe landing by helicopter rescue after dark.
