FDL Fire Dept Receives Generous Equipment Donation

The Fond du Lac Fire Department recently received a generous donation of hazardous material equipment from Koch Pipeline Company L.P. Fond du Lac Fire Captain Erick Gerritson says it amounts to about $50,000 in equipment. He says the equipment Koch donated wasn’t being used and in fact was being stored in another state. It was stored in a trailer in Missouri and Koch did an extensive search before deciding to donate it to their department. Gerritson says the department is fortunate because the equipment isn’t something they would normally be able to purchase. The department was recently named a Type 3 Wisconsin Hazardous Materials Response Team which requires them to respond in the city, county and surrounding counties and provide assistance to other fire departments.
