Thousands raised for safer fire helmets

Nearly $5,000 has been raised to give Savage firefighters some safer — and more costly — new helmets.

The money comes from a promotion in July at city-owned liquor stores, topped off by a corporate donation.

For every bottle of wine sold from an outfit called Hook & Ladder Winery, $2 went to a fund to buy a new breed of brimless helmet widely used in Europe. The helmets reduce neck strain and are less apt to be knocked off as debris falls.

The final check for $4,856 was a combination of :

• More than $1,000 that came directly through purchases at the city’s Marketplace and Dan Patch stores;

• $800 that came from additional donations at cash registers;

• A $3,000 gift from Cargill Inc., the Minnetonka-based firm with major operations in the city.

The helmets cost $100 more than traditional firefighting gear.
