The Borger Fire Department received a grant from Agrium that went toward the purchase of a Polaris UTV.
The grant, in the amount of $25,000, covers the costs of the UTV, which is a six-wheel vehicle equipped for rescue and wildland fire suppression.
The vehicle has the ability to access many places that the departmentâ€™s larger apparatus can not, so it can transport patients and equipment through the cityâ€™s industrial plants and provide quick access to these areas.
Box-top and pull-tab drop boxes are available at designated areas in Borger as part of fundraising efforts taking place by local schools.

Lydia Edwards, a parent from the PTO stated, â€śItâ€™s a good way to teach the children to contribute charity and raising money.â€ť
