Bangor – The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation is donating $20,000 to the Bangor Fire Department.
Monday night the City Council agreed to accept the gift. The money will be used to purchase a special washer and dryer that will get carcinogens and toxins out of firefighters gear. With a variety of chemicals in everyday products emergency responders come in contact with a great deal of potential poisons. In the long run this goes a long to to preventing cancer.
