Today, Alpine Township Fire Department Chief Dave Klomparens was presented with a check for $1,000 by Kenneth Van Haitsma Sr, Operations Manager for TransCanada Corporation. The company has a facility directly across Fire Station #2 on 7 Mile Rd. NW. The funds will be used towards the costs of improving bathroom facilities at the fire station and make them compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Mr. VanHaitsma stated that today's check for $1,000 was an installment and that a second part of this grant would be presented in 2013.
The grant request was prepared and submitted by Alpine Firefighter Brian Stalsonburg. Chief Klomparens wishes to thank Brian, Mr. Van Haitsma, and TransCanada Corporation for their efforts and generosity.
