The fire department is being granted a special fund for a new jaws of life.
"It's awesome we don't have to raise funds. We have Sen. Herb Snyder in our corner understanding what our needs are," says Marty Roberts of Baker Heights Volunteer Fire Department.
While they are currently equipped for all kinds of situations, there's been a need for a new jaws of life.
As many newer cars are made with stronger steel, and are difficult to cut through in an emergency situation.
"We got $6,000 for a new jaws of life. It's a cutter, not a spreader," says Senator Herb Snyder.
By receiving $6,000 from the state, the fire department does not have to hold a fundraiser, or delay the delivery of the device.
