Hanover Fire Department secures grant for vital rescue equipment


The Hanover Fire Department has received a $12,000 grant from Farm Credit Canada.

Auto extrication air bag systems are crucial for lifting vehicles and other heavy objects during rescue operations, allowing firefighters to safely and efficiently free individuals trapped in accidents. The new system will enable safer and more effective rescue operations, ensuring the Fire and Rescue team is fully prepared for emergencies.

Fire Chief Jeff Dentinger expressed his gratitude for the grant, and the new capabilities it offers.

"The new auto extrication air bag system is a game-changer for our department. It allows us to perform rescues more efficiently and effectively, which can make all the difference in life-threatening situations. We are deeply grateful to Farm Credit Canada for their generous support and commitment to our community's safety,” he said.

This funding, part of the 2023 #FCCAgriSpirit Fund, has been used to purchase a new auto extrication air bag lifting system. This essential equipment will replace older units and significantly enhance the department's emergency response capabilities.
