Insurance agency gives $2,000 to Clallam County fire district

District plans to use donated funds to buy individual packs for Community Emergency Response Teams.

SEQUIM — Insurance Services Group, an independent insurance brokerage based in Sequim, recently donated $2,000 to Clallam County Fire District No. 3.

Krista Linde, from Insurance Services Group, recently presented the check to Assistant Fire Chief Dan Orr and his team at Clallam County Fire District No. 3.

Insurance Services Group is one of a handful of insurance agencies across the country selected to participate in the Safeco Insurance “Protecting What Matters” program.

The program supports outreach and education efforts provided by local emergency responders and insurance agencies who strive to make a difference in their community.

“We are so excited to support the fire crews who help protect our community — the place we call home — every day,” Linde said.

Insurance Services Group recently teamed up with Clallam County Fire District No. 3 to help host a hands-on fire extinguisher safety class for residents at Discovery Bay RV Park.

During the class, those who attended learned the correct way to use a fire extinguisher in the event something were to happen inside their home.

“Fire District 3 has been focusing on educating the public in preparedness,” Orr said.

“The District is going to use the generous donation to begin to buy individual packs for Community Emergency Response Teams [CERT] in Fire District 3. Our first purchase will go to the residents of Discovery Bay RV Park, who are currently going through CERT training.”
