Minot Fire Department receives Enbridge grant
The Minot Fire Department received a $7,500 grant from Enbridge Thursday to assist the department in purchasing new life-saving equipment.
The funds, from the Enbridge Safe Community Program, will allow the department to acquire a battery-operated tool designed to help remove occupants from vehicles involved in accidents.
“Because this tool is battery operated, it’s very mobile and it’s an all-in-one tool for cutting and spreading in the case of a vehicle accident,” said Assistant Fire Chief Lonnie Sather. “We appreciate Enbridge’s commitment to the safety of our community. They’ve been a tremendous partner in helping us protect the residents of Minot.”
