Seneca Partners with Harmony Volunteer Fire Department

4/19/2019

Representatives from Lego-V and the Harmony Volunteer Fire Department had a productive meeting this week.

Seneca Landfill's team presented updates on the methane detectors and fire detection system at the Lego-V High BTU Plant.  The group discussed recommendations for fire safety and prevention at the facility's two buildings. Once the second building is complete, the fire department will return for training on its safety systems and advanced warning devices.

During the meeting, Seneca Landfill presented the Volunteer Fire Department with a $5,000 donation. Fire Chief Scott Garing thanked us, explaining that any donation helps offset the expense of running a volunteer organization.

"After a brief discussion with the officers, we are going to use this money to offset the cost of purchasing 1,000 feet of supply hose for our engine," said Garing. "In the event of a fire, we would utilize this to establish a water source from Hartman road to the affected area. We are going to purchase a larger supply hose that supplies more water in the time of need."

He went on to say about the cooperation between our two organizations: "We appreciate the trust and communication that has happened throughout the entire process. It has helped us get to know your facility and your people a bit more than we knew in the past."

The team at Seneca Landfill also appreciates the Volunteer Fire Department's commitment to safety and community leadership.
