Yukon Fire Department Receives Grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation

Posted by City of Yukon on 05/11/2020

The Yukon Fire Department was able to purchase lifesaving equipment, thanks to a $24,714.74 grant award from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The grant allowed our Fire Department to purchase a set of battery powered vehicle extrication tools, which include the following:

  • One 36-inch RAM
  • One Combination Cutter/Spreader Tool (Jaws of Life)
  • Two Battery Chargers
  • Four 6AH - 2V Batteries

“This equipment will allow our firefighters to rescue victims at a faster rate, due to the light weight and mobility of the equipment,” said Deputy Fire Chief Kyle Trumbly. “Our current hydraulic powered equipment is very heavy and is limited in use, due to the length of the hydraulic hoses used to power the equipment. Having this equipment will allow us to get to victims faster and use our expertise in a more efficient manner.”

The Yukon Fire Department is one of Yukon’s best departments. Optimism, energy and opportunity inspire the best in everything we do.  To learn more about Yukon’s best, visit www.yukonok.gov or call 405.354.2133.
