High visibility lightweight coveralls are what is needed at Puslinch Fire & Rescue. They requested funds to purchase new coveralls to keep their 42 firefighters safe. Their request was for $14,000 but due to the high number (again) of applications we decided to offer $10,000 and share other funds with more departments that need safety equipment.
Deputy Chief Brad Churchill was thrilled when I called him with the news that they would be able to provide at least 30 coveralls for the department. “Providing coveralls for the entire staff was a wish list but I am over the moon with being able to buy 30 for another level of protection,” he said. He also said he was a fan of my show and used to watch me as a kid with his mother.
I forgot to tell him it was actually me calling so it was even more fun after I told him. I’m happy to help all the firefighters in Puslinch stay safe.
