Brookfield Residential funds rescue raft for Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District

Brookfield Residential of Colorado has donated funds earmarked for purchase of water rescue equipment including a rescue raft for the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District, covering the new Barefoot Lakes community.

The Fire District received the $7,000 check from Brookfield to acquire an 18-foot Oceanid RCD Water Rescue Craft plus all the necessary equipment, including ropes, rescue slings and two ice rescue body suits. When not in use or on display, the raft will be stored for easy deployment at Station 3, 6800 Tilbury Ave., Firestone, Colo., which is in the fire district’s northern response zone. Eventually, it will be stored at the new site for Station 4 in the northwest response zone.
