Burnsville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Kenneth Summers and Assistant Chief Brandon Dean recently received a $5,000 grant award from the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund for their Fire Department.
These funds will be applied to the purchase of the department’s Polaris side x side to support personnel and equipment movement during wildfires and search and rescue initiatives in BVFD response area.
In additional to this year’s award, the department has received Giving Fund Grants previously to assist in improving service to residents and businesses. “We are extremely pleased to have been recognized as deserving in 2022 and grateful for the earlier awards that allowed us to upgrade equipment,” said Chief Summers.
Weyerhaeuser’s commitment to first responders has allowed the BVFD to improve safety for volunteer firefighters and the welfare of the citizens in their area while demonstrating their recognition and appreciation for the service BVFD offer.
