Firefighters get $5,000 grant for safety vests

March 17, 2009

Thanks to State Farm Insurance, Costa Mesa firefighters have a little more insurance that they’ll get out of dangerous situations safely.

The department recently received a $5,000 grant from the company to buy newly mandated high-visibility vests for first-responders.

The vests are part of a new decision handed down from the federal government that first-responders working on federal highways — such as in traffic accidents — must wear the high-visibility vests for increased safety.

Company officials will present the check to city leaders in the coming days, officials said.

For further information on the State Farm Insurance Company grant, contact Lynda Jenkins, grant administrator at (714) 754-5062.
