Superior Fire Department Receives $50K From Husky Energy
One of Superior's largest employers is making an investment in the city's infrastructure. The Superior Fire Department was at the receiving end of a $50,000 donation from Husky Energy - money that will be used for equipment investments. The company also pledged additional donations in the amount of $7,500 in each of the next four years.
According to news reports, the Superior Fire Department will put the money to good use - and soon. They have plans to order an upgrade with a new ladder truck that will be added to the fleet; this donation money from Husky Energy will help to make that happen.
Both the Superior Fire Department and Husky Energy see the donation funds as a win-win situation. The new ladder truck and future upgrades will make fire-fighting efforts in the industrial parts of town easier and more-efficient for the fire department. The department plans to upgrade a municipal (or residential) fire truck to make it "industrial friendly".

According to the city's website, the Superior Fire Department also offers fire inspections, provides community-wide fire education, offers a Hazardous Materials Level A Response Team, provides high level rescue services - including water rescue, confined-space rescue, and provides first responders to emergency situations.
