Grant to Help Chiloquin OR Purchase New Equipment

A $5,000 grant awarded to the Chiloquin-Agency Lake Rural Fire Protection District  (OR) will be used to purchase new equipment.

TransCanada Community Awareness Grant program is providing the funding for four monitors. The monitoring equipment measures levels of oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, or explosive materials in the air.

In its grant application, it was noted that the Fire Protection District does not have any equipment of this kind.

The Fire Protection District’s incident command vehicle and its three fire stations will each have a monitor. All 21 of the volunteer firefighters will be trained to use the equipment, which can be utilized during gas leaks, fires, or hazardous materials responses.
