Fire grant to help purchase cribbing

A recent grant issued to Fostoria Fire Division will help the department purchase cribbing that can be used at accident scenes and other rescue efforts.

Lt. Jason Root of Fostoria Fire Division said the $5,900 grant, which was awarded by the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste Management District last week, will be used to purchase stabilization cribbing made from 100 percent recycled materials.

The grant had required the purchased product be made of 25 percent recycled material and the city match 20 percent of the cost, Root said.
