POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A big donation from Anheuser-Busch will help ensure firefighters from several local departments stay hydrated on the job.
R.L. Lipton Distributing dropped off nearly 100 cases of canned emergency drinking water Tuesday from the beer maker as part of a nationwide program to help firefighters while they’re responding to emergencies.
“We have a refrigerator with water that is specific for firefighters so it is very important to stay hydrated during a fire,” said firefighter Bob Dutton.
The Western Reserve Joint Fire District, which covers Poland Village and township, was one of just three departments in Ohio to receive the water.
The department will share its donation with neighboring Coitsville and Lowellville.
