In a gesture of community solidarity and commitment to public safety, Frontier Foundation & Crawl Space Repair recently partnered with the Pleasant View Fire Department by donating an old box truck. The donation was aimed at enhancing the department's training capabilities, particularly in conducting rescue drills involving vehicular accidents.

By providing the department with a dedicated vehicle and space for rescue training, Frontier Foundation & Crawl Space Repair's donation enabled firefighters to simulate realistic scenarios and hone their skills in rescue operations. On April 22, 2024, the box truck was pushed off an embankment on Frontier's property, simulating an accident. This allowed the firefighters to work at their own pace, learning exactly how to handle a situation and best help the potential victim. Inside the box truck was a small car, which fire and rescue were able to tunnel through to access a "victim" trapped inside.

In another scenario, the PVVFD worked to free a "victim" who had been pinned underneath the car inside the box truck. The final scenario involved the use of the "jaws of life" to access specific areas of the vehicle, simulating a crash in which the vehicle's doors could not be opened.

"We are thrilled to support the Pleasant View Fire Department in their mission to protect and serve the community," said Dustin Gebers, General Manager of Frontier Foundation & Crawl Space Repair. "This donation represents our commitment to fostering collaboration and providing essential resources to those who selflessly dedicate themselves to saving lives."

"This contribution significantly enhanced the firefighter's training capabilities and enabled them to better prepare for the challenges that they may face in the line of duty. It underscores the importance of community partnerships in supporting our mission to protect and serve. Frontier Foundation & Crawl Space Repair believe wholeheartedly in the values of the Pleasant View Fire Department, and we are proud we were able to support them in their mission of better serving the community."
