Enerquip is proud of its team of highly skilled engineers who also have a passion for giving back to the community. Recently, our team has built two items for donation: One to raise awareness for brain cancer, and the other to make the Medford Area Fire Department more efficient.
Brain Cancer Awareness Baseball Game
The Medford Area Senior High School boys’ baseball team played their annual Brain Cancer Awareness game on Friday, May 19.
The game was held in memory of Dean Klemm, who passed away from brain cancer in 2011. Klemm was active in the Medford, Wisconsin, community, and especially in the baseball program.
This year, Enerquip donated a sweatshirt, hat, Yeti mug and a fire ring to the benefit game. The fire ring has logos from various Wisconsin sports cut out of it, including the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers. It was built by Enerquip engineers Justin Markow, Ivan Hubbard and Dustin Freeman.
Medford Area Fire Department
The Medford Area Fire Department plays an important role in keeping the Medford community safe. Enerquip appreciates all the hard work the firefighters involved with the fire department do.
So, when Captain Mike Radlinger came to Enerquip with a request, our engineers were happy to help. Radlinger explained the department would benefit from a jet siphon transfer tube.
These devices are used to quickly move water from one portable tank to another with little interruption. The transfer tube will be especially helpful for the Medford Area Fire Department to keep up with demand for its 2,000 gpm pumper.
The donation saved the department $1,000 and allowed them to improve their equipment so they can continue to keep Medford safe. Mike and Travis Frost played an integral role in making this donation happen.
