NCFC auxiliary steps up with new equipment
SHERI RYAN/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
Monthly hoagie sales by the New Columbus Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary certainly paid off when the auxiliary was able to purchase new equipment to donate to the fire company. A battery-operated Rhyno windshield cutter with accessories was recently purchased for $700. From left are Dave Chapman, captain; Don Schlier, first assistant fire chief; Gerry McConnon, auxiliary president; Liz Mele, vice president; and Audrey Damiano, treasurer. The Rhyno windshield cutter is new to the market and was designed by firemen. The new design and suction cups make it safer for victims during a rescue.
