We are pleased to announce that the Burlington Fire Department has received a donation from the Archer Daniels Midland Company.  The donation of $1400 will go towards the purchasing of new battery operated Milwaukee M28 Combo kits (work tools).  These tools will be placed onto the first out engines of the Department and may be used on a daily basis.

Funding is continually a concern for the Department and the City of Burlington, as we strive to remain cognizant of our fiscal responsibilities to the community.  Being able to work with organizations such as A.D.M., who understand the importance of community and who continually strive for improvement within the community is an honor and a privilege.

The donation was given through ADM Cares.  ADM Cares is a social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide.  The program comprises three distinct focus areas: supporting the responsible development of agriculture, improving the quality of life in ADM communities and fostering employee giving and volunteer activities.

The Burlington Fire Department would like to express our deepest appreciation to Archer Daniels Midland Company and those within the ADM Cares program for their generous donation.

Don Ryan
Deputy Chief
