Harris County ESD 48 obtains van to support Community Risk Reduction programs

Posted

Harris County Emergency Services District 48 has put a new van into service to support its Community Risk Reduction Program. The van supports community events such as CPR classes, home safety surveys and other events for the fire and EMS agency.

The vehicle has a new look with a donated custom wrap from On Site Decals out of Staford, said CRR Chief Jason Tharp in a June 15 press release. The van’s sticker price was about $28,000, Tharp said, but the department was able to save money through rebate programs and ended up paying about $23,000.

“It’s because of partnership like this that allows us to further our CRR efforts. It also allows us to invest in new and creative ideas and technology to keep our Katy area community and beyond safe,” Tharp said.

Steven Burke, CEO of OnSite Decals, said the company was happy to help out and support community building the ESD participates in.

“I hear nothing but good things from the many programs (HCESD 48 offers) to the community,” Burke said. “(The department’s) mission matches ours here at On Site Decals by putting the community first.”
