The Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company’s efforts to keep the community safe received financial support from two regional entities.
The Friends of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company received a grant from the NiSource Foundation/Columbia Gas for $11,000 to support the Fire Safety Education program.
A portion of the funds were used to purchase a new fire extinguisher simulator which replaces an aging system that helped train thousands during its useful life. The Fire Safety Education team uses the simulator to teach community members young and old how to properly use a fire extinguisher using the PASS method: Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep.
The remaining funds will be used to purchase additional smoke detectors to support the Fire Safety Education team’s initiative to provide detectors to those who need them.
