Cole County Fire Protection District recently received a $10,000 check from the Three Rivers Helping Hands Community Foundation. The money will be used to buy and install electric transfer switches to convert from utility/land power to generator power in case of a power outage at the district’s fire stations. The Cole County Fire Protection District also received a grant check from Phillips 66 Pipeline in the amount of $30,000. The grant money was used to buy a 35KW generator which is shown in the background. The District is extremely grateful to these two organizations for helping obtain much-needed equipment to keep fire operations functioning during a disaster.
