Cook Fire District Purchases a Dozen Air Packs

The Cook Fire District recently purchased 12 refurbished air packs, also known as self-breathing apparatus, along with 30 masks and 30 cylinders with money received at the July 2018 Cook barbecue/street dance and through private donations.

“We really appreciate the public’s support. Without this support, we would not be able to make this type of an upgrade,” Jason Brandt said.

According to Brandt, these air packs have twice the capacity and are much lighter in weight. They can be worn for about 45 minutes before having a loss of air. These air packs also have upgraded features that the Cook firefighters will receive training on in the near future.

Watermeier Shares his Experiences as Senator

Dan Watermeier of Syracuse served the past six years as the First District Senator in the Nebraska Legislaturet. In 2018, he was elected to the Nebraska Public Service Commission. Now that the New Year has begun, he will now vacate his office with the Legislature.

Senator Watermeier felt that the four years he spent on the Appropriations Committee were very important, as the budget is the primary responsibility of the Legislature. “The Appropriations Committee receives input from state agencies and listens to Nebraskans, prior to spending hours and hours deliberating on the recommendations for the two-year budget that are given to the entire Legislature. Because of all the information given the committee and the time spent on the recommendations, it is fairly rare that any major changes are made to the budget once it is presented to the Legislature. That is why the committee’s role is so important,” added Watermeier.
