The NEW Cooperative Foundation presented a donation check to the Rowan Fire Department. A $2,500 check from NEW Cooperative’s Foundation along with a check from Land O’ Lakes Foundation was presented on December 21, 2018. The $2,500 in funds will help provide new air packs for the fire department. The fire department provides fire protection to the City of Rowan, part of Iowa Township, and supply mutual aid to the NEW Cooperative facility outside of Rowan. With the update of air packs for the Rowan Fire Department, fire fighters will be protected in areas where air quality is poor. Such as smoke of a fire, NH3 fumes, or inside confined spaces.
