Fire Department Receives Donation

Gulf Run Transmission/Energy Transfer this week presented a check for $10,000 to Fire District #8.  Fire Chief Bill DeLoach said, “The grant will be used to acquire safety equipment for our firefighters.

Pipeline Technician Shane Hubbard  and Public Relations  specialist Alexis Daniel represented Energy Transfer in presenting the ”oversized” check to the Fire District #8.  Daniel told the Journal that District 8 is closest to the route the pipeline took through DeSoto Parish.  She said, “We like to go into communities along our route and find out what the needs are.  We make donations to various outreach efforts in those communities.”

The Gulf Run pipeline runs from Westdale south to Starks, near Lake Charles.  It was completed last December.
