Township to buy protective gear for firefighters

The Oct. 4 meeting was quiet and the agenda short for Upper Macungie supervisors.

Active shooter gear, similar to that worn by the police, will be purchased for the volunteer firefighters.

The gear will be carried in their vehicles so it is available in case of emergency.

Cost for the outfits is $18,393.12. A total of 15 units were purchased, which include a suit and helmet.

During public comment, some mention was given to the police situation from last month.
