From the article: 

Freedom Village at Brandywine, a prominent senior living community in Chester County, has announced a generous donation of $10,000 to the East Brandywine Fire Company (EBFC). The contribution was made during the fire company’s annual officer installation ceremony.

The EBFC plays a crucial role in the local community, providing essential services such as responding to fire alarms and offering emergency first responders for medical emergencies. Their services have been particularly vital amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, aiding with lift assistance and gathering critical medical information for EMTs.

In addition to their on-the-ground support, the EBFC has also conducted informative presentations on fire safety in community living and organized fire drills and evacuation exercises in Freedom Village’s Independent Living area. Their expertise has been instrumental in advising Freedom Village on equipment purchases, process improvements, and emergency planning, ensuring residents’ safety and well-being.

The generous donation from Freedom Village will contribute to the EBFC’s operational costs, supporting their vital work and reinforcing the strong bonds between the senior living community and the local service providers. This partnership exemplifies how local businesses and services can work together to create a safer, more supportive community.
