Palmer Donates Fire Equipment for Hurricane Sandy Relief
Palmer Township supervisors approve a motion to donate equipment to help fire departments that suffered during Hurricane Sandy.
It came without fanfare. And it took only a few minutes.
But at a recent meeting, the Palmer Township Board of Supervisors made a nice gesture to help out Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The board approved a motion to donate surplus fire equipment to fire departments that suffered during Hurricane Sandy.
"It's a great thing to do," Supervisor Bob Lammi stated before the motion was approved.
The donation calls for surplus fire equipment such as old hoses and nozzles and chain saws.
"We were looking to donate to a group helping out the New York and New Jersey fire departments who lost stuff from Hurricane Sandy," Supervisors Chairman Dave Colver said.
"We certainly wanted to help communities impacted by Sandy," Colver said. "It's a small part we can play."
At Tuesday's supervisors meeting, Township Manager Christopher Christman said he hasn't received an update about the donation since the motion passed.
