WATERFORD — A donation of $1,500 from Passumpsic Bank enabled the addition of three important new pieces of equipment to be purchased for the District 5 Special Operations rehab trailer, which is available to help provide a relief station for fire departments from 15 area towns. Equipment donated with the grant includes a mobile hand-washing station, a misting fan unit and a coffee pot. The donation was recently accepted by CALEX CEO Michael Wright, St. Johnsbury Fire Chief Brad Reed, District 5 Chair, and Waterford Volunteer Fire Department Lt. Ryan Aremburg at the Waterford Fire house, where the trailer is kept. Having the ability for firefighters and other EMS personnel to de-contaminate at a scene before getting coffee or using their hands will be very helpful, Wright said.
