Montello Masonic Lodge #141 Donates FST Unit

Last week, representatives of the Montello Masonic Lodge #141 presented a Fire Suppression Tool (FST) to the Montello Police Department.  The fire suppression tool is a game changer that could potentially help Montello police officers save lives and property.  Police officers are often the first on scene at a fire but may lack resources to suppress the fire.  The FTS units can quickly extinguish a fire, and at the same time avoid extensive fire and water damage.

This community donation from the local Montello Masonic Lodge was made possible by a grant program sponsored by the Act of Kindness program, a charitable arm of the Grand Lodge of Masons in Wisconsin.
