Self-contained breathing apparatuses donated to Prairie Fire

The Prairie du Chien Fire Department recently accepted delivery of three new state-of-the-art 3M-Scott SCBAs, or self-contained breathing apparatuses. This equipment is used when firefighters have to enter a hazardous, smoke-filled environment. 

This product donation was made possible after the fire department was asked by local 3M personnel—Plant Manager Steve Kleist and Human Resources Manager Shelly Gruber—if their company could help the department out with any equipment purchases they were looking to make. 

Megan Beisker, 3M procurement coordinator, worked with the 3M-Scott fire and safety sales rep for the area to order the appropriate SCBAs that the fire department was seeking.

Operation Santa in Crawford County had one of its most beneficial years in a long time, for the Christmas season of 2018. The numbers served included 107 families consisting of 300 people, according to Chair Sara Boxrucker. 

“We also gave out extra toiletries this year and additional food items we hadn’t given before. I think we knocked it out of the park for the first year,” said the Rotary Club member and former Jaycee. 

The Prairie du Chien Rotarians picked up the project for the first time upon the local Jaycees’ dissemination last year. “We had a lot of people step up,” Boxrucker noted.
