Braham Police and Fire Departments Receive New Equipment
The Braham Police and Fire Department will soon begin using new equipment for hostile and emergency situations.
The Braham police department recently purchased four pepperball guns, a less than lethal weapon that can be used to temporarily blind subjects in escalated situations. The department purchased four guns, one for each squad car.
The department has drafted a policy for the tools and expect to have the equipment in their squad cars by the end of March.
The Braham Fire Department meanwhile received a substantial donation from the Grandy Lions and will be using it to help purchase a Jaws of Life, a rescue tool used in a number of difficult emergency situations, particularly car crashes. No timetable has been given for the arrival of the equipment.
