Phillips 66 donates $35,000 to help firefighters

Submitted

Phillips 66 recently presented the Hominy Ranchers Rural Fire Department with a $35,000 donation to add five monitors to enable the cab controls for the department’s truck nozzles.

“We are committed to being a good neighbor to those who live and work near our projects,” said Matt Dowdell, of Phillips 66 Landowner Relations. “First responders go above and beyond to support this community and we’re excited to support the Hominy Ranchers Rural Fire Department so they can continue to keep the community safe.”

As a volunteer organization, the Hominy Ranchers Rural Fire Department is solely dependent on grants and donations to fund equipment and repairs. Additionally, all firefighters are volunteers who have committed their time outside of their jobs to help when needed.

“Our department is grateful for this donation from Phillips 66,” said Fire Chief Pete Anderson. “Anytime we have the opportunity to upgrade or add to the tools we have, it enables us to better serve our community in times of need.”
