McArthur (OH) Receives Fire Equipment Donation

A month after officially proposing a $1.5 billion natural gas pipeline project — part of which would run through Vinton County — the Columbia Pipeline Group donated $30,000 to help the McArthur Fire Department purchase 10 sets of protective fire equipment.

“We’re preparing to recruit new firemen,”  Lt. Rick Reynolds said in a news release. “(We) can purchase the necessary protective gear to keep them safe. This donation could not have come at a better time.”

Zane Daniels, manager of community and stakeholder relations for CPG, was on hand to present the money alongside the Vinton County commissioners and Development Director Terri Fetherolf.

Columbia has already submitted the pipeline proposal to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. From here, FERC will conduct a lengthy environmental impact review before it decides whether to approve the project.
