The check was part of Wolverine’s Good Neighbor Grant Program, in which money is used to fund good works along their pipeline route. Recipients must be a school, government-related entity or a non-profit agency.
In the past, Wolverine has emphasized education initiatives and environmental groups. But this year, Wolverine decided to put an emphasis on first-responder needs.
Fire Chief Kevin McNutt said the department will be purchasing a new carbon monoxide monitor with the grant.
“I would like to thank Wolverine Pipeline for the grant and for implementing the Good Neighbor Program,” McNutt said.
The fire department applied for the grant after hearing about it through Terry Swisher, the area supervisor for Wolverine Pipeline.
