We got a special visit from Stanley Engineered Fastening - Decorah, IA this week. The Decorah Operations donated DeWALT tools for us to replace/update tools on our trucks that were in need of replacement due to wear and tear, poor battery life, and to eliminate some corded tools. This is a great example of a corporate neighbor making a contribution that will help many in emergency situations for years to come. Thank you for your support! Photo courtesy of Ethan Pole
