Oncor Electric Donation Helps Brinker Volunteer Fire Department Fund Air Bags, Advanced Rescue Systems

Oncor Electric donated $5,000 to Brinker Volunteer Fire Department for the purchase of air bags and advanced rescue systems. The air bags, used in vehicle rescues to lift vehicles off of trapped people, were recently obtained and used during extrication training at B & M Auto Salvage.

Brinker VFD Chief Wade McDaniel noted the department is very grateful for that support.

The volunteer firefighters also practiced using stabilization jacks, designed to stabilize a vehicle that’s on its side for safe entry into the vehicle for patient extrication, and performed roof removal and dash rollups, used when a patient is pinned under the dash of a vehicle.

“We constantly strive to improve in all facets of Fire Rescue,” Chief Wade McDaniel stated. “We want what is best for our community and strive to do what we can for Hopkins County.”

Brinker VFD is a registered 501c3 organization. If anyone wishes to make a tax deductible donation to the department, they may do so on the “[email protected]PAYPAL account or by mail at Brinker VFR, 1415 F.M. 69 South, Sulphur Springs Texas 75482.

“Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated as we depend on donations to survive and get better,” McDaniel said.

The department also is planning to host a Crawfish Boil April 3 at the fire station. Crawfish will be offered for donations to eat at the station or to take home.
