Radnor Township Fire Department Donates Fire Truck to DACC

June 1, 2011

On May 27th, Radnor Township donated a surplus fire engine to the Delaware Area Career Center (DACC) for use in the Fire Service Program. DACC’s Fire Service Program thrives on training students using the most up-to-date equipment to prepare students for the important work they will do after completing the program.

Chief Randy Butts from the Radnor Township Fire Department was present for the donation. “We were unable to sell the fire truck through normal means,” explained Chief Butts. “The trustees and I were happy to donate the truck and see it put to good use by DACC students.” He went on to explain that, “Most of our fire fighters obtained their certificates through the DACC fire program, so this donation feels like an investment in the Radnor Township Fire Department.”

The fire truck will be used by both DACC’s high school and adult education programs. Students use these trucks to practice for the 16hr emergency drivers course that is required to be a firefighter and basic fire attack operations.

According to DACC Fire Service Instructor, Dan Huffman, “The support that we receive from the Fire Departments of Delaware County is tremendous. The DACC Fire Service Training program wants to thank Chief Randy Butts and the Radnor Township Fire Department for their continued support of our program.”
