Washer and Dryer Donated!

Shortly before the end of 2018 we wrote a post asking for some help in acquiring a washer and dryer to help with cleaning our hoods and other necessary items around the firehouse. As we learn more and more about what we do as a fire department, one of the issues we face is a very high risk for cancer, part of this is from things left on our clothing and fire gear after a fire. Having a good washer and dryer around will help us clean some of the items after a fire quicker and will lessen our exposure to these cancer causing materials and particles. We were fortunate enough to get some help, we would like to thank the Penn Rod & Gun Club and Kennametal, they have come forward and helped us purchase a new washer and dryer, we would like to say thank you for their donations, we appreciate it.
