We finally received our new 55 kw
generator. This generator will automatically turn on when normal power
fails. The new generator is cost efficient and runs on propane. The
generator is very important to our department. It will ensure power to run
our communication’s and building in case of power failure due to natural
disasters. We are also happy to add that we received our Thermal Imaging
Camera. This is a great tool for initial assessment and finding hot spots
unseen by the human eye. We hope this camera will help in saving more of
our community’s property.
The generator and camera was purchase by a grant from FEMA.
