The Phillipsburg Fire Department Rural District #1 would like to recognize and thank the following organizations for their generosity and continued support of the grant request for equipment upgrades. Their contributions enabled the department to purchase five new SCBA's for the Recuse, Jaws, and Rural Pumper. The department was also able to purchase a new Ford F550 with 500 gallon water capacity, 20 gallon foam capacity, the capability of two 1 1/2" cross lays, two whip lines, and a booster reel. This truck replaces an outdated 1984 Dodge light brush truck, which only held 200 gallons of water. Again, the Phillipsburg Fire Department Rural District #1 would like to thank the following organizations that made this possible:
Dane G Hansen Foundation
Albert Morgan and Leona A. Morgan Charitable Foundation
Darwin and Lorene Cole Foundation
Phillips County Community Foundation
This new equipment will help us to continue to assure a high level of emergancy care for those who deserve the best... the people of our community.
God Bless America
