Federated makes donations to area fire departments

Federated Rural Electric, Jackson, recently presented a donation totaling $7,500 to four local fire departments Alpha, Ceylon, Lakefield and Northrop.

Federated took advantage of matching funds from two organizations to triple the impact. Federated donated $2,500, then secured matching funds from CoBank’s Sharing Success Program and Basin Electric Cooperative. CoBank is one entity that provides Federated long-term financing for line construction projects, while Basin Electric is one of Federated’s wholesale power providers.

The Alpha Fire Department will buy hoses and nozzles with some of the donation. The Ceylon Fire Department has been raising funds for a few years for a torpedo nozzle system. The Northrop Fire Department will buy two new air packs, and the Lakefield Fire Department recently purchased new self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
