Beaver County Emergency Services Commission receives funding from Providence Grain Solutions Community Fund
THURSDAY MAY 24, 2018
Providence Grain Solutions believes it is important to be a part of the rural communities surrounding our locations.
Our goal, just like yours, is to see these communities flourish both economically, and socially. The focus of the community fund is healthcare and education within our communities.
As part of the community fund presentations last October, Beaver County fire dept was one of the recipients. They sent out a newspaper release describing how they used the funding:
"Beaver Emergency Services Commission is very excited and pleased to have received funding from Providence Grain Solutions – Community Fund.
Money received from the generous donation of Providence Grain has been used to purchase an inflatable fire educational house. This summer, and during fire prevention week, be sure to watch for this in your community either at a school or fair near you.
The purpose of the Educational Firehouse is to promote fire safety; it has 3 rooms set-up as if it were a home. The first room you walk into is the kitchen. It has a refrigerator and stove. This is where the safety presentation starts.
The second room is a living room with a fireplace. The third room is the “escape room” that features a window that allows the kids to climb out & jump to safety onto an inflated landing pad outside the house, an additional piece to the educational house is a fire truck slide for the kids to climb and slide down for more enjoyment. Children walk through & have fun learning proper in-home, fire safety.
The Fire departments throughout Beaver County will use our house to promote fire safety education and provide fun for the children. Without the generous support of Providence Grain, this project would not have been possible."
