“ Thanks to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, Munson Fire Department receives grant to replace broken and out dated extrication equipment. “
Munson Township, Ohio (Oct. 6, 2015) — The Munson Fire Department has recently been awarded an extrication equipment grant. The grant, awarded for $ 25,000, will cover the complete purchase of a set of Genesis Extrication equipment. The equipment is replacing a current aging set more 18 years old. This set currently has two hydraulic rams out of service. These rams are no longer serviceable, rendering the set obsolete. Traffic accidents account for 12 percent of our call volume. This equipment could have assisted our personnel back in March when one of our Emergency Vehicles was involved in a traffic crash.
The extrication equipment is state of the art. Producing the maximum cutting forces of 365,000 pounds, required to meet the demands to cut newer reinforced vehicles. Today’s vehicles are manufactured with high carbon steel and magnesium for structural integrity. These metals are used for reinforcing of the passenger compartment.
These tools will not only serve the residents of Munson Township, but will assist and serve any department calling for assistance and or aid. Munson Fire Department provides automatic aid to Chardon, Chesterland, and Hambden Fire departments. Under mutual aid and MABAS contracts we have or will respond to any Lake, Geauga or Cuyahoga county department requesting assistance.
