NEW Cooperative Donates to the Charter Oak Fire Association
To help support purchasing a New Skid Unit for Quick Attack Truck
Charter Oak, IA – The NEW Cooperative Foundation is pleased to present a $4,000 donation to the Charter Oak Fire Association. The Charter Oak Fire Association received a Quick Attack Fire Truck donated by the Iowa DNR. The truck allows them into areas that the big truck cannot access. The new skid unit is a complete self-contained firefighting unit that allows a quicker response to grass and field fires. The addition of the skid unit will be a great service to the residents of Charter Oak and the surrounding areas and will allow the Charter Oak Fire Association to continue to protect and enhance the safety of those they serve.
