ROXANA – Phillips 66 contributed nearly $40,000 to the Hartford Fire Department as part of the company’s commitment to support safety and preparedness in fenceline communities.

The donation will fund new bunker gear and accessories for the fire department’s volunteer firefighters. The funding covers the burden of the cost to replace this equipment, which can only be used for approximately ten years by recommendations from the National Fire Protection Association. The funds will cover seven sets of pants, coats, boots, helmets, Nomex hoods, and gloves.
