Grimsby firefighters get a helping hand

[ Back ]

Snippet:

GRIMSBY, ON - In the world of fire fighting, it is not unusual for departments to reach out to each other. But it is a little more rare for a private fire company to lend a hand to a department in need.

The fire and security department at U.S. Steel Canada handed over 21 Scott air packs, roughly 45 air bottles and a number of masks to the Grimsby Fire Department Tuesday. The Hamilton-based metal processor recently replaced the equipment of its fire force, which consists of a few members of the Grimsby volunteer department, with a new brand and offered its old equipment to the Grimsby Fire Department. The estimated value of the equipment is $70,000. However, if the fire department were to go out and purchase new units, which it has outlined in its four-year capital needs, it would cost upwards of $100,000 said fire chief Mike Cain.

“This donation, is the single most significant donation this fire department has ever received,” said Cain. “The specific products provide new technology and enhance safety for our firefighters because of their lightweight design and higher capacity.”
