TransCanada Keystone Pipeline recently gave a $10,000 check to the Fallon Rural Fire Department.
The donated money will be used for building repairs and upgrades to the Fallon fire facility. Improvements to the building will include installing heating, adding siding and insulation and making repairs to existing garage doors, according to volunteer fireman Jack Runner.
About 20 volunteers work with the department.
This is the second donation received locally by TransCanada. The company also gave $10,000 to the Town of Terry earlier this summer for repairs to be made at the Terry Swimming Pool.
TransCanada hopes to build a 1,980-mile long, 36-inch pipeline extending from the tar sands near Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast in Texas. The pipeline would run through about 21 miles in Prairie County. The project is currently being reviewed by the State Department.
