Kearney Fire Department receives $6,479 award

FIRE FIGHTERS IN the community of Kearney, Mo., just north of Kansas City, will receive some computer training modules courtesy of the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. and a recommendation by IST Bill Creeden.

On March 16, the company presented the fire district with a $6,479 check through the Fireman’s Fund Heritage program. The program supports fire departments nationwide with grants calculated on the value of policies written by its agents. The International’s agent, Chris DeCaigny, president of the Union Insurance Group, applied for the grant and asked IST Creeden to recommend a deserving fire department. Creeden and DeCaigny were among those on hand to present the check.
