Evinrude/BRP donates $30,000 toward SPFD training facility

SPRUCE PINE – Evinrude/BRP donated $ 30,000 to the Spruce Pine Fire and Rescue Sept. 9 to help with the construction of the new training facility available for training to all neighboring fire and rescue departments.

The training facility was designed to build firefighting skills in search and rescue from single and multi-story buildings, use of ground and aerial ladders, safety procedure rappelling and rescue in confined places.

Through these types of donations, Evinrude/BRP continues to demonstrate its commitment to community involvement by supporting firefighters, whose vital roles are protecting people, the environment and property by responding to emergencies.
