Celestine firefighters receive donationSeptember 17, 2018
From Local Sources
CELESTINE — The Celestine Volunteer Fire Department recently received a donation from TransCanada Corp., a natural gas supplier with a compressor station in Celestine.
Fire Chief Ryan Wineinger said the $17,000 gift — it was part of TransCanada’s Community Investment Program —was used to purchase a new set of extrication tools and pump, which replaced the department’s original, 30-year-plus extriction tools.
The new tools provide increased capabilities and speed of operation to shorten critical extrication times, Wineinger said.
The tools are in service on the department’s new light rescue truck and have already been put to use, proving their importance and value, the chief said.
Celestine’s fire department includes five trucks and 24 firefighters.
