The District was the recipient of a $1000 Enbridge Safe Community Grant for 2012. The grant, written by FEO Brian Roth, will be used to maintain and upgrade the District’s air monitoring capabilities.
The District currently operates OSHA 4 gas air monitors at all three stations and have dedicated units for the Technical Rescue Team. Ongoing maintenance and calibration is required to keep all monitors in compliance and a docking station was purchased through a previous joint effort with Enbridge Energy.
The current grant will be used to purchase calibration gasses and a new cyanide detector for use on fire scenes. Cyanide has been identified as a leading contributor to fire scene death and injury. Enbridge Safety, Training & Compliance Coordinator, Randy Wilberg presented the check to Battalion Chief Steve Kolodge at Station 1
