ORU Grant Provides Life-Saving Equipment

A June 2017 Operation Round Up® (ORU) grant to the Newcastle Fire Department (NFD) proved to be a life-saving decision when the department's fire fighters used the equipment to save a person's life following a vehicle accident. The $2,830 grant allowed the NFD to update its extrication equipment, meaning quicker and more efficient work when responding to vehicle accidents involving entrapment.
