The Plainfield Fire Protection District will be purchasing a HazSim Pro radiation and multi gas training monitor to assist firefighters with training scenarios thanks to a grant from Illinois American Water (IAW).

The IAW 2017 Firefighter Grant Program provides financial assistance to fire and emergency organizations serving communities in its service areas.

Illinois American Water’s Firefighter Grant Program awards grants to provide personal protective gear, communications equipment, firefighting tools, water handling equipment, training materials and classroom programs.

Plainfield Fire Chief David Riddle thanked Illinois American Water during the check presentation.

“The Board of Trustees and the members of the Plainfield Fire Protection District would like to express our sincere thanks to Illinois American Water for their generous grant program and for awarding grant funding to our Fire District,” said Riddle.
