After the recent wildfires that swept across the state of Kansas left behind large devastation, local firefighters are very appreciative for their latest fire equipment received to help during those situations.

Firefighters of Mitchell/Cloud/Ottawa Rural Fire Department No. 1 recently received a Dane G. Hansen Foundation grant of $4,985.90 in order to purchase new nozzles that will provide larger quantities of water flow.

The money helped the department purchase one Task Force Tips Blitzfire High gallons per minute ground monitor that flows up to 500 gpm as well as a two hand-held 2-1/2 Viper Select nozzles that flow upt o 250 gpm.

“The grant is very appreciated and these nozzles will help us to better serve our rural community for a variety of situations if the need arises,” said MCO Fire Chief Larry Heidrick. “These nozzles will be very beneficial on large fires.”
