Kulpmont Fire Department Lieutenant Albert Rosetta shows off the new protective equipment that will be put to vital use by Kulpmont Fire Department in an effort to help save lives.

KULPMONT — The Kulpmont Fire Department was recently recipient of new protective equipment received through a state grant (along with firefighter relief funding) of approximately $40,000.

“It’s recommended that PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) be replaced every 7 to 10 years or sooner, depending on wear and damage,” noted Matt Siko, who was very pleased and thankful regarding the equipment upgrade. “The last major purchase for the Kulpmont Fire Department was in 2004.”
