The Mammoth Volunteer Fire Department received a generous donation last week at the Town of Mammoth Administration building. Walter Richter, administrator of corporate public affairs for Southwest Gas presented Mammoth Fire Chief Marty Ponce a check in the amount of $500. Town Manager Patsy Large, Fireman Michael Miranda and Fire District Board Chairman Rick Sanchez were also present.
Richter said he read about the Mammoth Fire Department’s program that provides smoke detectors for Mammoth residents that cannot afford one. “Since we are a safety first company and believe in giving back to the community, I thought this would be a perfect fit for the donation,” said Richter.
