We had a great visit from our local Chevron office during Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Chevron announced a generous donation of $40,000 to the Carlsbad Fire Department.
Mark McCulley, Chevron operations superintendent, said the company is grateful for the Carlsbad Fire Department’s tremendous effort in supporting the community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding included a donation for the purchase of electrostatic misters, which spray fine mist to help decontaminate the fire department’s equipment. The fire department has used similar misters in the past, but this new equipment produces a much finer mist that does an even better job.
Additional funds will be used for radio communications and other equipment, in particular microphones that will make communication easier. Thanks again to Chevron for this generous donation.
From the office of Mayor Dale Janway
