ADAMS - Tools of the trade, including rope, rescue harnesses, helmets and pulleys are on the way to the Alert Hose Co. thanks to a Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation grant from the William and Margery Barrett Fund. The grant was written by Assistant Chief Dave Lennon.
The $2,000 contribution "allows us to replace rope that was past its certified lifespan and expand our ability to safely equip firefighters involved in rope rescue situations," according to Adams Fire Chief Paul "P.J." Goyette.
The Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation dispenses more that $7 million each year through grants and scholarships.
