South Fork Fire Rescue receive safety beacons

SOUTH FORK — On Monday, Sept. 26, the families of Ace Towing and Snow Mobile Auto Repair presented every South Fork Fire Rescue member with a Guardian Angel personal safety beacon.

The device emits red and white flashing, or constant light making emergency responders highly visible on the scene of an accident or roadside emergency. Having roots in both fire and law enforcement, Evan Dick, owner of Ace Towing, of Monte Vista, said this was his way of giving back to the local agencies that he routinely works with. 

The gift of the personal beacons highlights the safety concerns faced by first responders and tow companies.  The members of South Fork Fire Department thanked the families of Ace Towing and Snows Mobile Auto Repair for their generous donation.
