Fire Rescue News

 

photoSt. Johns County Fire Rescue Chief Carl Shank made a brief presentation at Tuesday’s regular Board of County Commissioners meeting in acceptance of $29,000 in grant funding from the St. Johns County Port, Waterway and Beach District.  The funding was officially accepted by the BOCC as an item on the consent agenda and is now available for use by SJCFR.

 

This year, SJCFR applied to the Port District grant program and was approved for $29,000 to help fund our marine rescue mission through the purchase of two personal watercraft (PWC’s).  This is the third time in the past few years that the Port District has provided funding to help us with equipment purchases in support of our public safety mission.  These PWC’s are a critical response vehicle for our Department in trying to reach those in need as quickly as possible.  SJCFR has developed an extensive PWC operations program, saving lives each year, and instructing various agencies across our region in this critical response component.

 

The Port District has an important responsibility in the economic health of both commercial and recreational marine activity in our County. We fully understand that future navigational and other marine related projects faced by the Port District and greatly appreciate their support of our mission.  SJCFR wants to thank the Port Commissioner’s Gerald Dixon, Chuck Hennessey, Barry Benjamin, Herb Rippe, and Jay Bliss for this funding and their continued support of SJCFR.

Innovation and Safety — The Hallmarks of TenPoint’s Success

  Innovation and Safety -- The Hallmarks of TenPoint's Success   To the untrained eye, a crossbow is such a simple tool. After all, historians say its design dates as far back as the 5th century BC and was meticulously described by the Greek author Heron of Alexandria. He called it the gastraphetes, which resembled a heavyweight archer's bow attached to a wooden launching arm. The operator would push the butt-end of the launcher … [Read More its Good for You...]
