Orca Green Marine LLC Donates LED Navigation Lights
Meghan Matthews from Orca Green Marine LLC kindly donated all new LED navigation lights for the Annapolis Fire Boat at no cost to the City of Annapolis. The lights cost approximately $3,000. This is a great example of local businesses helping the Annapolis Fire Department.
The lights were installed by the Annapolis Fire Department 3rd platoon's crew. These new lights increase visibility for up to 2 nautical miles. This also enhances our crews' safety which is one of the Fire Chief's annual goals. Meghan is also developing new LED work lights to replace existing flood lights. The Annapolis Fire Department greatly appreciates this generous donation and support from the community.
Annapolis Lions Club Awards the Annapolis Fire Department with $500
Members of the Annapolis Fire and Police Departments were hosted by the Annapolis Lions Club for an evening of dinner, fellowship and a financial award of $500 to each organization. The Annapolis Fire Department will use the donation to purchase CPR supplies for citizen CPR classes. Chief Stokes graciously accepted the contribution and thanked President Ron Housley for the Annapolis Lions Club's many years of support and partnership in assisting the Annapolis Fire Department in providing the citizens of Annapolis with CPR classes from our instructors.
