Recently, Pendleton Fire Chief Mike Ciraulo wrote the following on Facebook-
“I just wanted to let you know that the Thermal Imaging Cameras that the Wildhorse Foundation granted us earlier this year were a saving grace in our Christmas day fire on Main Street. Not only did they save thousands of dollars in damage to the structure (they allowed us to limit tearing open walls and limited water damage) but helped us avoid a possible disaster. It allowed our Firefighters to see the flashover conditions as they were developing and allow the Firefighters to safely retreat before they were burned or killed. Thank you SO much!”
We could not be more happy that we are able to help those that serve and protect our communities! Thank you to the Public Safety personnel who keep us all safe throughout the year!
