City of Kentwood donates hand held portable radios to Lake Superior State University
In a recent Kentwood City Commission action, approval was given to Fire Chief Brent Looman to donate 20 older hand help portable radios to Lake Superior State University’s Fire Science, Criminal Justice and Paramedic programs.
Receiving the donated radios was James Schaefer, Ph.D., Chair of the Fire Science, Criminal Justice and Paramedic programs. Lake Superior State University is the only state university in Michigan that offers Undergraduate degrees in all three of these professions.
The City of Kentwood has previously donated fire fighter turnout gear and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SBCA) to LSSU’s Fire Science program and they continue to be a partner with LSSU providing internships for individuals in the Fire Science program.
All of individuals in the picture are Alumni of the Lake Superior State University, along with several other police officers and fire fighters of the City of Kentwood.
