For Immediate Release:


The Pinetop Fire District is pleased to announce that the agency has received a grant award from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for the FFY 2022 for the purchase of extrication equipment. The grant award in the amount of $30,000.00 will purchase extrication equipment to increase the effectiveness of our rescuers’ ability to extricate victims involved in vehicle crashes. The equipment’s improved technology will allow resources to shave minutes off the extrication functions at crashes ultimately improving injury and mortality outcomes due to vehicle crashes and entrapment.
