Natural gas distributor PNG donated a much-needed spineboard to the Kitimat Marine Rescue Society.
PNG has a small corporate donation and sponsorship fund that allows community groups to apply for funding. The society identified a need for an additional spineboard to ensure that response times to medical emergencies on the water are minimized.
PNG heard about their need and donated this essential piece of safety equipment to the society.
“PNG hopes that this donation will help the KMRS volunteer team to continue providing safe and essential emergency response to marine incidents on the Douglas Channel,” said a PNG’s Dominic Freeman.
“RCM SAR 63 Kitimat is grateful to PNG for its generous donation. The addition of a spine board will allow us to provide wider ranging support to individuals in need of assitance on the water,” said RCM SAR 63 station leader Spencer Edwards.
“It also allows us to further our interoperability with other local emergency services.”
