Brookfield Renewable, U.S., recently donated $8,000 to the Fulton Fire Department toward the purchase of a rapid deployment rescue boat and additional rescue equipment, said Fulton Fire Chief Adam Howard. “Our city is grateful for Brookfield’s support, and this equipment is a critical addition to the tools our firefighters can use to save lives when seconds count,” said Fulton Mayor Deana Michaels. A rapid deployment craft, or RDC, allows a rescuer or rescue team to quickly reach a victim and safely retrieve them from open or ice-covered water, Howard said. “With our climate and nearby river and lakes, the RDC will be an invaluable tool to make our rescue efforts more effective, efficient and successful,” Howard said. In addition to the RDC, the donation helped purchase ropes, life vests, helmets, swift water rescue suits, carabiniers, and more, Howard said.
